Buddhist Festivals & Special Events
At the LBC we celebrate a number of traditional Buddhist festivals –
for instance the Enlightenment of the Buddha. These festivals often have a strong element of collective practice,
meditation and ritual. They are an excellent way to meet and practise with others.
We also have special events such as Buddhist rituals to mark the full moon nights,
and Mandala Community Evenings – where people who regularly attend
the LBC meet with the council of trustees to discuss the direction of the centre.

9 September - 22 October 2010

Directed by Mukul Ahmed

Bangladeshi theatre breathes new life into the greatest love story ever told, Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

Weaving together Shakespeare’s verse and Bengali poetry, People’s Romeo is a dynamic cross-cultural performance made for our time. Five performers use Pala Gaan – a theatre style which combines music, dance and storytelling - to re-invent this classic of English theatre.

What a beautiful escape. A totally uplifting experience.
