Opening Ceremony

2014 marks the golden anniversary of the arrival of the first disciples of Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan to London. To launch the spectacular six-day Festival, the disciples of London will put on a flamboyant concert depicting the journey from their arrival fifty years ago that began with the divine commands of Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa to come here, to the present day.

This medley of song and dance will tell the story of a fledgling community that grew from strength to strength, and under the inspiration of Acharya Swamishree Maharaj, has itself become an inspiration to the local community through its charitable, arts, educational and sporting activities. Through hundreds of performers, this unique and theatrical concert will depict the flourishing of our community and its activities, including the origins and evolution of our world-famous Shree Muktajeevan Pipe Band.

Stadium-style seating, professional audio and visual production and dedicated performances will generate an electric atmosphere for the audience, which will include several VIPs and dignitaries. A truly befitting way to commence the festivities.
