Bengali Sanskriti Club Peterborough

Back to Activities

Bengali Sanskriti Club is a group of Indian Bengali families who live and work in Peterborough. They regularly meet and organise walks, picnics, lunch clubs, women-centric courses, festival celebrations, and promote music and dance through their groups Musafir and RituRanga.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • It provides a respite from hectic work life and improves social skills
  • It helps improve mental health and promotes a healthy and active lifestyle through various sports, music and dance activities
  • It helps us celebrate and uphold our culture in a foreign country and pass it on to the next generation

“Coming for rehearsals with Musafir is my ‘oxygen’.”

“Sweet Bengal (food stall) reminded me of home, thank you for taking me back to my childhood.”

“Dance is my lifeline, grateful to have this group to share it with.”

Anamika introduces the Bengali Sanskriti Club:
