The UK-India Year of Culture celebrates the two countries’ deep cultural dies and the 70th anniversary of India’s Independence through a year-long programme of events and exhibitions which will take place in both countries.

The reception brought together the best of British and Indian culture and creativity, represented through a range of high profile guests with an interest in both countries. The attendees include guests from the fields of performing arts, fashion, food, literature and sport such as Kunal Nayyar, Neha Kapur, Ayesha Dharker, Kapil Dev, Rio Ferdinand, Anoushka Shankar and Joe Wright.

During the reception, there was a display from the Royal Collection, which included items from previous royal visits to India, and Indian gifts and manuscripts from the Royal Library.
