Bhangra Nation

A New Musical

This event has passed

“Are you ready to Bhangra?”

As the Uni Bhangra dance team wait nervously backstage to find out if they’ve made it to Nationals, the real showdown has already begun as team mates Preeti and Mary clash over what Bhangra really means to them. Whilst Preeti believes that the team needs to stick to tradition, Mary is passionate about shaking things up to belong to today.

When a huge row changes the team forever, Mary and Preeti start on journeys of discovery into what they stand for and who they want to be.

Scintillating new slick musical…The fun of this thrilling, hilarious and charming show is truly infectious. Bhangra Nation is guaranteed to lift your spirits. It’s a must-see…I could easily see this transferring to the West End Soon…I left the theatre beaming from ear-to-ear.”
Birmingham Mail

A moving and funny new musical about friendship, family and identity, brought to life with boundless energy and joy, incredible dance moves and a truly bhangin’ soundtrack.

Fresh and funny…jubilant new musical that fuses college-campus angst with the colourful, high octane world of competitive bhangra”
