Experience an outdoor Indian Folk dance parade in Leicester’s city centre.

Join Nupur Arts in this wonderful parade featuring traditional Gujarati folk dance, costumes and props, inspired by the recent Gujarati Heritage project ‘Gujarat To Golden Mile’. This dance parade is inspired by the stories of Leicester’s Indian migrants from India and Africa and their settlement in the East Midlands. Nupur Arts are using sustainable suppliers and recycled materials, props and costumes to bring a taste of Gujarat to you, in an environmentally friendly way!

You are all welcome to join in on the fun and get a glimpse into Gujarati stories and culture. After the parade, join Nupur Arts for a second live performance on the Jubilee Square stage at 3.00pm.
