Nehru Center London

The Nehru Centre is the cultural outreach of The High Commission of India in UK. It is among the most active of India’s cultural centres abroad and has, over the years, emerged as a premier institution engaged in India’s cultural interface with U.K.

The Centre organises a wide range of cultural evenings at its premises, showcasing Indian music, dance and theatre, besides a range of activities aimed at strengthening and deepening the intellectual dialogue between the two countries, such as exhibitions, lectures, illustrated talks, book launches, film screenings, seminars and round tables. 

The Centre serves as a platform for Indian culture in the broadest sense, focussing on the role played both by British and Indian artists and scholars in promoting greater cultural understanding. It has launched several books, by both Indian and British authors and promoted the participation of British authors in Indian literary festivals. The Centre also serves as a catalyst and facilitator in promoting interaction among cultural bodies in the two countries.
