Built in Britain and shipped to India, the ancient steam locomotive is resurrected in a whistle stop tour of the engine’s imagined life. From villagers turned outlaws to First World War transportation and a James Bond for Asia, the UPG Team & Parkour Circle invite you on their railway adventure. The first part of this
evening’s programme will feature members of Vina Ladwa’s Manushi
dance company performing two new dances including Vasant.
