Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Beauty And The Beast -

Gurkhas and Nepalese res­i­dents cel­e­brated the ar­rival of the new year 2074 with a big bash at the week­end.

The Sa­gar­matha Gurka and Nepalese Com­mu­nity Ash­ford cel­e­brates the event with a fes­ti­val, to help pre­serve their cul­ture and to build a bond with the com­mu­nity.

Com­mu­nity chair­man Bhaskar Ti­tung helped to or­gan­ise the event at the Nor­ton Knatch­bull School hall.

He said: “It was a Nepalese mu­si­cal ex­trav­a­ganza and the main at­trac­tion of the evening was the per­for­mance of Nepalese pop singer Shiva Pari­yar.

“There were also cul­tural dances by the young­sters and pop­u­lar Nepalese del­i­ca­cies for peo­ple to en­joy.”

The Nepalese New Year will be of­fi­cially marked to­mor­row (Fri­day).

The Nepali cal­en­dar is ap­prox­i­mately 56 years and eight months ahead of the English Cal­en­dar known as the Gre­go­rian Cal­en­dar or AD.

Mem­bers of Sa­gar­matha Gurkha/Nepalese Com­mu­nity Ash­ford cel­e­brated Nepalese New Year 2074 on April 8 at Nor­ton Knatch­bull School
