Recent Projects

Diwali Project
We were delighted to help with the commemoration of Leicester’s Diwali celebrations which have grown to be the largest outside of India. This is a great achievement for the community members who put so much effort into making them a success, and we were very pleased to add new Diwali material to our holdings so future generations will understand the origins of Leicester’s celebrations.

Abhilekh Project with the Centre for Indian Classical Dance
The word abhilekh means archive in the Sanskrit language. We have been working with CICD which received funding for their project to create a physical and virtual archive of their work. The Record Office has helped by providing training for volunteers and holding the physical archive.
