Milapfest’s Indika festival praised by Lord Navnit Dholakia

Milapfest Institute for Indian Arts used on website for launch Friday 4 September 2015

Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrat Peers Lord Navnit Dholakia praised the work of Milapfest and its “electric” 10-day Indika festival.

Writing for Asian Voice, Lord Dholakia reflected on his visit to the Creative Campus for the opening of the arts festival held in July.

He said: “We all seem mesmerised by what London has to offer, often forgetting that tucked away in different parts of the country are schools of culture and arts often surpassing what London has to offer.

“Take Liverpool. Little do we know that tucked away in all the beauty of this Merseyside city is the Capstone Theatre where over the past few years the most significant Festival of Indian Arts in Europe takes place.

“The work of Milapfest, and its ​truly​ unique orchestra, can make London look over its shoulder. A time will come in the not so distant future when Liverpool and its citizens will overtake the Capital.”
