Welcome to Utsav
Celebrating Bengali Culture in London
Welcome to our new website. The little fledgling club of 2010 has truly, we hope lived up to its name UTSAV, by celebrating the cultural and religious events that make up the rich fabric of our Bengali heritage.
This new website seeks to give you glimpses, images and snippets from these celebrations as well as information about upcoming events. Above all, it comes with a warm invitation to participate in our events and in our efforts to fondly recreate for ourselves and our children, things big and small from our home countries that we so dearly miss in our life overseas. Whether you have newly arrived from India or Bangladesh or have lived abroad for many years, we welcome you all to the UTSAV family.
