"It's a temple for performing artists and arts trying to preserve Indian cultural , heritage and legacy in the heart of thousands of Asian artists in London. Artist and arts are beyond any geographical boundaries, religion, sex or colour discrimination. We believe in unity in diversity- and Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan ( London) is a great place to practice that."
Nivedita Sengupta
"A centre for the promotion of traditional Indian art and culture, offering classes in the sitar; different styles of dance including Kathak; singing in a range of vocal styles and language classes.
There is also a library and cafe.
A friend invited me to their 2017 Christmas performance and the young people's choir was wonderful, as were the dance performances. Highly recommended."
