Like any other community living outside India, Bengalis too have a rich heritage of art and culture. Every year during Dussehra (or Bijoya Dashami), a true bengali yearns for a cultural extravaganza that sums up the whole year for him.

Keeping this spirit in mind, Radio Bangla Net, the online 24x7 radio station for the NRI Bengalis and India Now Ltd, a frontline event management company from UK have come up with Kolkata Festival 2015 at the Logan Hall on the Sunday, 4th of October.

This year Kolkata Festival brings you Rupankar Bagchi LIVE, the national award winning playback singer, the much acclaimed Paroma Banerjee and the teen sensation Lagnajita of Bashanta Eshey Gyacchey fame along with Lonodon based singer Sahana Bajpaie. The festival also showcases ''ChoukaaTh, The Threshold'', a film by Raja Dasgupta, a short feature – Ryan and I by Sambit Banerjee and a documentary called 'Aam O Amra' by Sulagna Ghosh.

The event also offers great Kolkata cuisines and street food like Biriyani, rolls and jhalmuri. This is a one day event starting at 2pm till 9pm evening. For more information see www.indianow.co.uk
