Alchemy celebrates the exchange of ideas and cultural connections between South Asia and the UK with a programme of dance, comedy, music and literature.

Alchemy is a place for artists and audiences to come together. The 2018 festival focused on homegrown talent, bringing together emerging and legendary performers from across the UK, including Talvin Singh, Birmingham club night Shaanti and stars from the country's leading producer of South Asian dance, Akademi.
