“Bhangra is celebrated across continents by different practitioners. Its evolution is like a vast pipal-tree, flourishing and spreading its branches. However, as our ancestors taught us, a tree stands strong not by its fruits or branches, but by the depth of its roots.”
– Hardeep Singh Sahota, Bhangra: Mystics, Music & Migration (2014)
Free, for families with children aged 7+, with accompanying parents/carers

This is part of a weekend of events to celebrate the next stage of hello future, the museum’s ambitious transformation project. The museum’s doors will temporarily close its doors to the public from 29 August until late 2022, so construction work can take place.
