শুভ নববর্ষ ( ‘Shubho Nabobarsho’) – Happy New Year!

Why do we celebrate New Year in midwinter? Why not kick things off in Spring as the sun finally comes out, the flowers unfold, and life begins again? The Bengalis have it right!

At Sunday Assembly East End this month, we’ll be celebrating Bengali New Year (Pôhela Boishakh), and learning about the rich culture of one of London’s largest diasporas. We’ll be inviting Bengali speakers and performers to share everything from traditional Bengali arts to thoughts on modern Bengali-British identity.

Stay tuned for more details on the line-up!

We’ll also be singing some celebratory classic pop, building community over tea and coffee (and hopefully some Bengali treats…), and reflecting together on how we can help each other bloom with the bluebells!

*** Assemblies are free to attend and run entirely on donations. Please bring cash and support us if you can, to keep it free for those who can’t ***
