Rich Mix in Tower Hamlets is holding a host of events between Sun 3 March and Sat 30 March to commemorate the 42nd Bangladesh Independence Day (26 March 2013).
"To mark the occasion we are hosting a variety of events throughout March, celebrating Bangladesh arts and culture. Through visual arts, theatre, poetry, dance and music, artists will express what Bangladesh Independence means to them. We are especially excited about hosting the mid-career retrospective of British Bangladeshi female artist - Sanchita Islam."
More information on the whole festival here: http://www.richmix.org.uk/whats-on/festival/sanchita-islam-the-rebel-within/
I'm thinking of going to the "Independence Day of Bangladesh Celebration through poetry, music and dance" event on Saturday 30 March, 3pm - 7pm.
"Mitali Arts Group is organising a cultural event to celebrate the Independence Day of Bangladesh in association with Swadhinata Trust and supported by Rich Mix. The event will focus on the story behind the struggle to achieve independence through poetry, music and dance"
The event is free. You can find details here: http://www.richmix.org.uk/whats-on/event/independence-day-of-bangladesh-celebration/
