Part of GemArts Masala Festival – a mix and blend of the finest South Asian Arts & Culture

An enthralling blend of South Asian flavours for all the family in this outdoor finale to GemArts’ Masala Festival.

Take part in colourful and vibrant arts, crafts, dhol drumming, Bollywood dance, Indian Storytelling, Mask Making, Rangoli, Calligraphy, Henna and Printing Workshops. Watch performances by beautiful Indian Marionette puppets, and try delicious Indian street food from Dabbawal. 

Look out for Circus Raj, a circus troupe from India performing throughout the day, with stilt walkers, extreme juggling, sword swallowing and acrobatics. 

If you love theatre, caravans and an Indian Elvis, then look no further as this year’s festival brings you…..Elvis’s Bingo Balls - Enter a seafront arcade, pulsing with neon and filled with sounds of the slots and the bingo. Your caller, clad in his Elvis outfit, tells stories of moving to this town “so every day can be a holiday”, whilst his assistant dreams of singing, of dazzling audiences with her act.
