Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan

Based in West Kensington, London, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan – known as ‘The Bhavan’ – is the largest centre for classical Indian arts and culture outside India. The Bhavan is committed to ensuring the rich artistic and cultural heritage of India is alive and available to all. The Bhavan in London is one of five international Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan centres around the world, complementing the 105 centres in India.

The Bhavan is the only venue in the UK – and one of few places outside India – where Indian classical arts are taught in the traditional way to nurture a deep understanding of the genre. The venue offers classes in dance, music, yoga, languages, art history and Carnatic music theory.

Students are encouraged to undertake their own personal, artistic and spiritual development, enhanced by the knowledge and artistry of The Bhavan’s accomplished teachers and visiting performance artists, who appear in its regular live events.

The N Sethia Foundation is pleased to offer its continuing support to the centre and has, for many years, donated to The Bhavan’s annual Diwali fundraiser.
