Indian Summer at Horniman Museum and Gardens

Expect a feast for the senses as the sounds and spirit of South Asia come to London.

This summer, Horniman Museum and Gardens are celebrating the diversity and influence of South Asian music and culture with a vibrant season of events, performances and displays. With a busy programme of events throughout the summer, there will be the chance to enjoy outdoor festivals, participate in music and dance, immerse yourself in storytelling, enjoy outdoor cinema, get creative through arts and crafts, and taste delicious street food inspired by the region.

The Indian Summer season kicks off with Tamasha on 9 July, an Indian Summer Party for all the family, set in the Horniman’s beautiful Gardens. Other highlights include the Indian Summer Baaja, a festival of music, stories and dance from across South Asia, and India Unplugged, a photography exhibition exploring music making in Punjab, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Odisha and Kerala. Technology meets tradition in audio-visual extravaganza PunjabTronix, featuring DJ Swami and Punjabi folk musicians as part of the Indian Summer Late. In August, there will be outdoor film screenings of Slumdog Millionaire and The Jungle Book, as well as many other events to suit all tastes.

The Horniman’s Indian Summer season runs from Sunday 9 July to Sunday 3 September 2017. Some events are ticketed, some are free to attend.
