Veiled Voyagers – A Mahfil

Experience a mahfil – a traditional creative gathering from South Asia – and hear the voices of Muslim women who visited Britain between 1900 and 1947.

As you enter the mahfil tent, you will be immersed in stories, music and dance while surrounded by Indian furnishings, sweets and perfumes. A treat for all the senses!


This is a free, ticketed event.
