The month sees the Season of Bangla Drama come alive in Tower Hamlets. Plays, drama, stories, music and seminars, free and cheap. Much will be based at the Brady Arts Centre in Whitechapel and otherwise at Rich Mix in Bethnal Green.

Timely is a free walk on Sunday 21st October meeting at Wapping Station at 2pm for some education about the Lascars who settled in the docks areas. Best to book with the Whitechapel Art Gallery.
