Alchemy at the Southbank centre

This is happening from next week:

Alchemy is Southbank Centre’s 11-day journey into the richness, contrasts and confluences of the relationship between the UK, India and South Asian culture. The festival returns for a second year, taking over the site with contemporary and traditional music and dance, debate, literature, film, craft and fashion.

Building on relationships between Southbank Centre and leading artists and cultural organisations in the UK and the Indian subcontinent, the festival looks at the region’s fast-changing economic and cultural landscape, exploring its relationship with and influence on the UK, the juxtapositions between classical and folk traditions and notions of urban and rural progress. Festival-goers can discover classical masters alongside emerging British Asian talent, folk traditions alongside contemporary experimentation, traditional dance, top writers and popular entertainment, probing debate and the latest fashion.

I’m heading for a few events (quite a lot are free!)…

    And if you’re not in London the Angelsey Mardi Gras is on at Mona next weekend. We will even have Stephen Green and his merry bunch of bigots standing at the gates to welcome you in :)

    Aha, so I did damon!

    And fwiw, I roughly agree with you on this thread (apart from all the UKUncut going round in circles bee in the bonnet thing you’ve got going). As I’ve already said. And as I said on the other ‘Muslamic Ray Guns’ thread. Sorry this doesn’t fit with your stereotype of me.
