We were thrilled to showcase the exquisite artistry of Mr. P. Singh through an art exhibition spanning three days. While the exhibition ran for several days, we highlighted the Tuesday evening programme as a launch evening. Additionally, Rhoslyn Singh, a burgeoning talent recognized by the Nepal Mamila, graced the event with her own captivating creations.

Adding to the evening, we were delighted to host a book launch featuring Author Sangita Swechcha’s latest masterpiece, "Rose's Odyssey." This rare occasion celebrated the remarkable talents of Nepali artists and author who are staunch supporters of Nepali culture in the UK.

The evening was an enriching experience, commencing with a period of networking and refreshments from 6:00 pm to 6:30 pm, followed by insightful talks and presentations in the Ballroom upstairs. We heard from Sangita Swechacha about her latest literary creation during the book launch as well as a number of glowing book reviews.

Following the event, the art exhibition and book display remained open for viewing until Thursday evening (April 18th) at Lancaster Gate.

The Universal Peace Federation's International Association of Arts and Culture for Peace (IAACP) celebrates artistic and cultural programmes, especially when those initiatives help to draw communities together into deeper mutual understanding. This programme allowed the audience to sample the flavour of Nepali environment, culture and thinking.
