Date: 18th March, 2017
Time: 6:00-10:00 pm

Navroz is the Persian word for New Year and it marks the coming of spring in the countries starting from Europe's eastern boundaries and all the way across to the Pacific. Navroz transcends religious, ethnic, linguistic and national divisions and brings people together. It showcases the region's rich tradition and mythology for the world to experience. Above all else it is an occasion for celebration.

We would like to share this spring cheer with you! Come and discover completely different cultures, traditional costumes, dance, music and food.

Watch an amazing show prepared especially for your enjoyment.

The event is organised by the Cambridge Central Asia Forum, Jesus College, Centre of Development Studies, University of Cambridge and Cambridge University Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan student societies.

Everyone is welcome. It is a free event.

Registration is mandatory, there is NO reserved seating, we advise you to arrive on time to ensure a seating place.
