Khmer New Year in the UK

The Cambodian community in the UK will celebrate Khmer New Year with two ceremonies next month. A formal religious ceremony will take place on Saturday 7th April at the Amaravati Buddhist Monastery at Great Gaddesden, near Hemel Hempstead from 10am til 1pm. A week later, on 14th April, a more informal celebration will be held between 3pm and midnight at the VLC Community Centre in Hackney, London. Guest of honour will be the Cambodian Ambassador to the UK, HE Hor Nambora and the entertainment will include classical and traditional dancing and a disco - so get practising your Ramvong before the big day!
