Commonwealth Country Fair is an annual event held in aid of the Commonwealth Girls Education Fund. This year, 33 Commonwealth countries attended the event at Kensington Town Hall, London. The fair had colourful stalls showcasing the diversity of the different countries. Artefacts by local artisans were displayed. Also present at the fair was country specific cuisine. All profits from the fair will be utilized for the Commonwealth girl’s education.
There was also an array of cultural events presented by the different countries. At the fair, India was represented by London’s Bordoisila Bihu Gosthi who performed the rhythmic Bihu dance from Assam. With the dancers adorning traditional attire made out of muga silk, the performance was eye-catching. The entire sound for the well choreographed dance was created live on stage. The audience present at the occasion, from the other countries clapped to the beat of the dhol and were seen enjoying themselves.
