ABOUT US
Slider

Bandra has always been a happening place. Over 100 years ago, it was the pride of Salsette. Today, however the landscape within the Queen of the Suburbs has changed. It still sets an example for the rest of Mumbai as a melting pot of activity and culture, with a large number of restaurants, thriving nightlife and an educational hub. No wonder it attracts a cross-section of people, all wanting to make it their home. Its residents proudly call themselves 'Bandraites', a pride that stems from the enormous wealth of culture and talent that exists in this beautiful suburb.

The Times Celebrate Bandra Festival began in 2003. It was conceptualized with a view to bring people together through world-class entertainment that is free of cost and accessible to all. In the process, we showcase professional talent and provide a platform for budding talent to grow. Funds from the Festival are channeled to support deserving social projects in a vibrant Bandra community.

OUR TRUSTEES

Celebrate Bandra has a Board of Trustees who oversee the core function of all the activities, and who make sure everything is in place to support those who want to be a part of this wonderful community.
The Trustees are citizens of Bandra who are passionate about the suburb and are keen on giving back to the community in any way that they can. With hard work and commitment, they have managed to successfully carry out 9 editions of Celebrate Bandra and have stood by each other and the organization since 2003.
Their commitment is evident in the time and effort they contribute to the organization year on year to build this community for the suburb.
