Back for a seventh year in 2016, its programme will once again showcase talent from the UK and the Indian subcontinent, exploring the creativity that's grown from our shared history.

I've been attending Alchemy at Southbank for several years now, and each year it just gets better and better. With a focus on South-East Asian culture, there are a mixture of free and low-cost cultural events that suit all tastes and ages. Over the past few years they have had everything from inspirational talks to dance performances to vegetable growing talks to sari workshops. This year I particularly enjoyed the installations and short films, and even caught a few musical and dance performances in the first few days. It's definitely worth popping by if you haven't caught sight of it already, and at the back of the Royal Festival Hall there is a KERB outdoor food market with really delicious dishes that are pretty unmissable.
