The Bhangra Showdown will be heading to the Barclaycard Arena this month. Now in its 9th successive year, this will be the first time ever the World's Biggest Bhangra competition has been hosted outside of London. It all began as a venture, organised by the Imperial College Punjabi Society, with the aim of raising money for charities whilst enjoying the traditions of the vibrant Punjabi culture.
With support from the Punjabi community and university Bhangra teams from across the UK, The Bhangra Showdown has continuously been successful in fulfilling both of these goals: the event has received much media attention as a model for cultural enterprise. Furthermore tens of thousands of pounds has been raised for charitable causes.
The Bhangra Showdown 2016 takes place at the Barclaycard Arena on February 20.
