Events throughout the year

Durga Puja:

This year, Durga Puja will be celebrated on 8th, 9th and 10th Oct. As we are slowly coming out of COVID restrictions, it’s a pleasure to announce that HPCA will be conducting the physical cultural event this year during the Durga Puja and we request all of you to come and participate like every year.

Please find the details as below.

We are expecting nominations from up to 8 to 10 groups (including 4 from outside HPCA, preferably representing another cultural organisation). Kindly confirm your participation ASAP. It will be on a first come first serve basis.  We will love to have mixed gender groups. The format will be disclosed on the day.

Saturday (9th Oct):

19:15 P.M:  The HPCA mega event “HPCA: Strictly Come Shining”. This will be the stage for you to showcase your talent. The theme can be anything to celebrate life and our gratitude to what we have. The theme is not very rigid. Showcase your creativity. You can perform in group (up to 6 to 8 mins) or solo (up to 3 to 4 mins). It can be singing, dancing, instrumental, skit or anything that you want to perform on stage in front of the cheering crowd and celebrity guests. As you would imagine, there are limited slots but we want to accommodate everyone, including participation by the external groups from Hampshire and elsewhere. Can we request all the HPCA members to kindly confirm your participation by 10th of Sep as you will have the first preference to fill up the slots.
