Leicester Probashi was established in 1992
promote cultural activities originated in West Bengal, Bangladesh and the
adjacent states (such as Bihar, Jharkhand, Orissa, Assam and in certain aspects
Nepal). People originating from these areas of Indian subcontinent receive the
activities of the Leicester Probashi very positively. Our cultural activites
are well attended by the members and non members. In several occasions we have
organised workshops and cultural activities embracing other cultures with
traditional Bengali culture. Thus, we consider our activities are not only a
demonstration of Bengali culture but also a very effective way of promoting
cultural interaction between different sections of the society. Our activities
are well documented in many international websites and that encouraged many
people to attend our activities from the different parts of the U.K.
Our activities are diversified and generally take the form of dance, vocal and
instrumental music, drama and visual arts. We organise workshops, which
promotes Bengali cultural activities within the local community and that also
encourages younger generations to join our activities. This also provides an
opporunity for the younger generation to perform for the public.
We have well planned programmes for each year. Starting with
SHARAD UTSAV (Durga Puja,
five-day cultural activities) we have the following other cultural programmes:
(i) Bijoya Sammilani; (ii)
Basanta Panchami; (iii) Paila Baishakh;
(iv) Rabindra Jayanti. Thus, in a year we
arrange nine cultural activities where
all communities are welcomed. In addition, we organise workshops every year,
which lead to public performances.
