A single word that captures India’s essence is its diversity. With a population of more than a billion people, multiple religions and thousands of tongues, Indian culture, in its 70th year of Independence, has ensured for the people despite, their age, origins and beliefs, an ingrained sense of their cultural heritage.
Celebrating 70 years of Indo-UK relations by bringing a slice of the cultural diversity that is India, India at UK2017, will blend in artistic traditions from the UK and will be organized by the Indian High Commission, the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), the Ministry of Culture, and festival producer, Teamwork Arts, in association with key institutions in the UK across premier venues.

India is defined by her diversity which permeates through her culture, her ethnicity, language, art, dance, and music.
