Discover stories from South Asia in this fun and creative workshop with Sita Thomas

From sheikhs to suffragettes, explore lives and stories from South Asia using drama games, movement and sound in this fun and creative workshop.

Be inspired by some curious characters including the ayah, an Indian nanny, abandoned at King’s Cross station with just one pound in her pocket; the sheikh who set up a Hindustani coffee shop; and the suffragette who campaigned for women’s rights.
