Sat 20 Oct - Doors 8:00pm, £12 (£10), with meal £18 (£16)
Lose yourself in Bollywood for the night with the great tunes and compulsively danceable rhythms of the most popular music in the world. The experience is completed with projections of sensational dance sequences featuring India’s greatest actors and actresses, in sync with the live music. Four funky drummers and six hot horns play massive hits from Indian films, all driven by the huge beat of the dhol drum. They’ve been a big hit on the festival circuit, including, to great acclaim, Womad.
