Virgin Media, recently increased their presence in East London and to celebrate, they have gone Bollywood. Yesterday, myself, a handful of bloggers and henna enthusiasts were invited down to renowned henna artist Ash Kumar to learn more about his craft. Also, on Saturday, they are having a big bollywood party in the heart of East London.
East London is known for its asian culture so it was only right for Virgin Media to celebrate the arrival of their superfast broadband in this manner. Ash Kumar has worked with many celebrities and big brands including Madonna, Amir Khan, Thornton’s and X Factor. His partnership with Virgin Media will see him revamp their logo which will then be placed on the Virgin Media van fleet in East London along with bespoke designs by the people of East London.
This Saturday (28th), Virgin Media are having a big bollywood inspired party and all are welcome. There will be an opportunity to learn expert henna tips straight from Ash himself, get their henna done by AK Academy trained artists, take part in a dance workshop or dig into delicious Indian street food from Dosa Deli. There will also be live Dhol drum music and amazing performances from Bollywood dancers for the whole family to enjoy. The event will take place at Barking Road Recreation Park from 12pm.
