Event description
Come and join us to celebrate the 55th Birthday of Sangam World Centre!

About this event

Sangam will be celebrating a fabulous 55 years on 16th October 2021 of being your World Centre in India! We want to celebrate this day with all our friends, both near and far, so come and join us for the virtual celebrations running throughout the entire day.

The day will be filled with lots of interactive fun activities and things to learn which you can find below.

This will be a great opportunity to connect with old friends and make some new ones too. Sangam means "Coming Together" in the ancient language of Sanskrit, so let's celebrate the day together as family!

FREE CELEBRATION DAY, all and any donations welcome.

Join for all or part of the day, we can't wait to see you!

5:30 am UTC (11 am IST) - Facebook live at the neighbourhood temple for Puja

We will start the celebration by visiting our local neighbourhood Hindu Temple (God Datta) for a Puja ceremony to bless our auspicious day. This has been a tradition at Sangam for many years. The Sangam family will come to you via a Facebook live for this part of the birthday celebrations.

7:30 am UTC (13:00 pm IST) – Kathak Dance by Prajakta

Join Prajakta to learn about classical Kathak dance originates from the northern part of India. Prajakta has been a very good friend of Sangam, and Sangam has been a very important part of her life for her self learning and development.

9:30 am UTC (15:00 pm IST) – Free Yoga & Meditation Session by Kirti

Join us for a relaxing yoga session taught by our experienced yoga instructor, Kirti, in the Wellness Shala at Sangam. These sessions are designed specifically with your health and wellbeing in mind. Take some time to reflect, move, learn and grow all in a supportive environment.

11:30 am UTC (17:00 pm IST) – Cake Cutting Ceremony & Celebrations

Come and join the cake cutting ceremony with us !

You can bake your own cake and bring to the ceremony and enjoy with us. Dress up in your sari and bangles, and bring along a memory of your time at Sangam. This will be the time where we will all share our Sangam memories together. You will also be able to look forward to a Sangam staff and Nivedita Guides surprise performance!

1:30 pm UTC (19:00 pm IST) – Auction

Time to fundraise for Sangam on this special occasion

As a part of a fundraising opportunity we have organised this online Auction to mark Sangam's Birthday and to help raise funds for Sangam during this difficult year of closure to in person activities. This has been a tradition on every Sangam birthday where people bid on the items for auction. This year it will be an online auction with bidding done through chat. Further information will be included in your pre event email.

Age: All ages

We will be selling a World Centres Virtual Programmes badge, which will be available to all those who join an online virtual event with us. The link for purchase will be available in the email communication after your event.

Minimum numbers:

Important note: This session requires a minimum of 10 participants (excluding free leader places) to run. If there are fewer than 10 participants booked 24 hours before the start time the session will be cancelled.

Age requirements:

All participants under 16 need to be accompanied by an adult to join the session.

If you are booking as a Unit/Troop this must be booked by a leader aged 18+. At least two adult leaders will need to attend the session. Two leaders may attend for free – simply book the number of tickets needed for your youth participants and any additional leaders. You do not need tickets for the two free leaders.

Individuals under age 16 who are not attending with a Unit/Troop need to be booked by an adult age 18+ and an adult must attend the session with them.

Individuals aged 16+ who are not attending with a Unit/Troop may book themselves onto a session and do not need an adult to attend with them.

Private events:

We understand some Units/Troops would like a private session just for their group, and during 2020 some World Centres were able to offer these sessions. However, due to limited resources and staffing at the World Centres during 2021, we have created fixed dates and times so that we can ensure the Centres can reach as many people as possible. This does mean that we are unable to offer sessions outside of those advertised on Eventbrite.

If you would like to guarantee a session will be attended only by your Unit/Troop, you can book all the tickets for that session. We do encourage attendees of free events not to block tickets which may not be used.

Other important information:

Sessions are delivered in English unless otherwise stated. We are working on having sessions delivered in other languages in the future.

Please note this event is only for members associated with a Girl Guide/Girl Scout Organisation – this includes but not limited to Youth and Adult Members (please check the age guideline for each event), Unit/Troop Helpers, Membership Organisation Volunteers, and youth Parents/Guardians.
