It’s the sixth year of Alchemy, Southbank Centre’s annual festival showcasing the best of dance, music, theatre, design, fashion, comedy and literature from the UK and South Asia.
2015’s festival features Bollywood singing star Shreya Ghoshal, the sell-out show Nirbhaya from the internationally-acclaimed director Yaël Farber; powerful dance from Aditi Mangaldas Dance Company; tabla master Zakir Hussain and the return of 'the greatest literary show on earth', the Jaipur Literature Festival, for a two-day residency.
Throughout the 11 day festival there are free workshops, must-see performances, stunning, thought-provoking exhibitions and a delicious Eastern inspired food market, as KERB does Alchemy.
With much of the festival free to enjoy, come down with your friends and family and experience it for yourself.
