Rabindra Tirtha will be an associate partner of British Council's Inter-School Drama Programme from 8th to 13th December. The event will be held in Rabindra Tirtha. There are, in any case, Sunday evening cultural progmmes in Rabindra Tirtha and many other events which are published in Rabindra Tirtha's web site.
In Eco Park too, there will be exciting events in winter and dates are being finalised. Nazrul Tirtha will host film festivals : besides being a possible additional venue for Kolkata International Film Festival this year, I just spoke to Director of Alliance France and Consul General of France to see if a weeklong French Film Festival may be held in November - December.
