Find out more about Alchemy, a festival for the innovative and curious offering a programme packed with collaborations, workshops, talks, food and drink showcasing the creativity and cultural connections between South Asia and the UK.

What is Alchemy festival?

Alchemy is our celebration of the amazing imagination and art of South Asia and offers a rich variation of ways into the culture of the sub continent, as we acknowledge and give light to everything from biryani to Bollywood through short films, concerts, discussions and performances.

Very often South Asian arts get tagged along as a sort of ethnic other, so it’s exciting that it has a dedicated space where one can look at the range of work that’s coming from the sub continent.
