Year of Culture launch at Buckingham Palace
Year of Culture launch at Buckingham Palace in February 2017 

In 2017, the UK and India will celebrate a major bilateral year of cultural exchange.

India and the UK have a long and rich history. UK/India 2017 will enrich relationships at all levels of society, their institutions and government, building a shared future for generations to come.

2017 will see an incredible programme of cultural events and activities in India organised by the British Council, and a similar programme in the UK organised by the Government of India. We believe that by experiencing the most innovative and exciting creative work from both countries and exploring our joint history, people will want to know more about each other’s countries and build deeper connections.

You may attend an event in your city or online everywhere from early 2017, get involved and explore an arts tour of the UK.
