Every year, the Foundation marks the start of the Persian New Year with its Gala, held in this year at The Ballroom of The Dorchester on Park Lane and Phillips Auction House.

This ancient festival celebrating the arrival of spring remains deeply entwined with the social and cultural fabric of Iran and much of the rest of the Persianate world. Recognizing this, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution in 2010 to mark 21st March of each year as the ‘International Day of Norouz.’

    Amazing, I love Iran.

      I love Iran too. Let’s hope that Iran is soon freed.

  • Sassan

    May Iran soon be liberated so that Iranians can take back their nation from the non-Iranian Mullahs that have destroyed our once great nation. The Mullahs have even voiced their disdain for Nowruz (Persian New Years) and have wanted to ban it. It is a disgrace as to what has turned into our once great nation.

    Thank you Britain and Iran Heritage Foundation for this project! It is very much appreciated that you help preserve Iranian culture while Iranians are occupied with a horrible non-Iranian regime. Very much appreciated. Thank you.
