Parades, Pageantry and Passion!

Parades, Pageantry and Passion!

Nutkhut is thrilled to present our newest group, The Bollywood Battalion, at Aldershot’s Victoria Day this Saturday. Our newly formed dance group, comprising local Rushmoor residents, embodies our mission to unite diverse communities.

“Creating dance in public spaces with communities is my passion. From beginners to the experienced, from veterans to the newly arrived, I love how the language of dance can bring people together!”  Simmy Gupta, Nutkhut

This unique ensemble features Gurkha Army Veterans, Ukrainian refugees, local youth, and retired groups, reflecting Nutkhut’s commitment to fostering connections among people who might not otherwise meet. Victoria Day, the highlight of Aldershot’s summer, showcases the town’s vibrant community spirit.

As we parade through the heart of Aldershot, we celebrate cultural awareness and partnership, honouring the town’s rich military history and diverse population.
