2016...a look back

On 23 April, 2016, we marked Shakespeare Day across our nine centres in India, with a set of fun activities with school children and college students such as quizzes, theatre workshops and a discussions around the Bard's work. This short video, above, captures all the action that took place at our main centre at the British Council in New Delhi.

Hollywood actor extraordinaire Sir Ian McKellen was in Mumbai between 23-26 May, 2016, to unveil the BFI Shakespeare on Film collection for the British Council in India. During his visit, he indulged in a freewheeling conversation with Bollywood actor Aamir Khan at the National Centre for Performing Arts, Mumbai, over Shakespeare, his acting influences, LGBT rights and equality and lots more.
