THE SOUTHALL STORY AT ALCHEMY
Wednesday 7 April 2010 – Tuesday 11 May 2010
The Southall Story created by Shakila Maan, Kuljit Bhamra and Ammy Phull with Cathy Woolley and Michael McMillan is finally coming together.
Southall is re-created with a sense of a ‘Time Tunnel’ where we go back to the 1950’s and explore an extraordinary history, both cultural and political.
Southall is a town that has welcomed new communities throughout the last century, enabling them to excel and influence both the social and political structures of Britain.
The Southall Story at the South Bank is part of Alchemy, a festival exploring the culture of India, its diaspora and its relationship to the UK today in over 30 events spanning dance, music, literature, debates, fashion and food.
