Derby Festé coincides this year with the climax of the Navratri Festival. The nine-day Hindu festival, which is celebrated across the world, finishes on Friday September 29 and is even more significant this year as it coincides with the 70th anniversary celebrations of India’s independence, and we are inviting you to be part of it.
The organisers are looking for people to join them in an incredible performance of the Garba, you don’t have to be experienced, just willing, enthusiastic and able to attend a free workshop.
People who attend the workshops will then perform in Derby’s Market Place on Saturday September 30 as the final event of the two-day Derby Festé.
The workshop dates and locations are free to attend but you will need to let them know if you will be joining us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning Artcore on 01332 384561:
