How to get involved
This year's vibrant procession will be created by locally based company Medialink who will be working with local schools, community groups and artists in the lead up to the event.

Glorious and glittering floats will feature aspects of Bangladeshi life, from the poignant reminder of the struggle for change through the miniature Shaheed Minar monument, to a celebration of the joyous occasion that is a traditional Bengali wedding. Accompanying the floats will be dancers, musicians and local schools and community groups.

If you are a school or group that would like to be involved please email info@baishakhimela.org.uk
