South Tyneside’s multi-cultural society is to be celebrated in an evening of music and dance.

Bollywood is set to meet Irish dance and musical theatre as performers from across the borough, and further afield, show off their talents at the annual Hindu Nari Sangh summer event.

The show will take place at the Customs House, in Mill Dam, South Shields on Saturday.

Among those performing will be students from STAMP, Ukulele star James Bassett, Hindu Nari Sang classical dance, All Stars Performers and Sarah McVay’s School of Dance.

Samba music will also feature on the night as well as singer Salman Aziz.

Others performing include Weca’s Choir Singers, singers Lily, Newcastle Tamil Academy and Irish dancers.

The evening will close with a performance from the Bollywood Sand Dancers before the audience will be invited to join in the fun by taking part in the encore.

Dr Shoba Srivastava, MBE, said: “It is always a good event and we would love if people would come and join us.”

Tickets for the show cost £8, children under 5 are free and include an aftershow curry.

Tickets are available from the Customs House on 454 1234 or visit www.customshouse.co.uk or by contacting Dr Srivastava on 455 8146.
