Celebrate Norouz at the V&A

A special event at the V&A today marks Norouz, or Persian New Year, with Persian classical music, folk dance, stories, poetry and sound sculpture.


The day also offers the chance to make a paper carpet, design a tile, see a calligraphy demonstration and take part in other activities, to mark a festival celebrated each year around the spring equinox by Iranians, Kurds, Afghans other western Asian groups.
