The year-long program of events will mark the close ties between the two nations since India’s independence 70 years ago.
There are events across the UK, as well as in India, which have been developed by the Indian High Commission in London and the British Council, and involve other notable organisations such as BFI, Arts Council England and Wales Arts International.
There are still plenty of upcoming events you can get involved with.
The best of British and Indian culture has been celebrated by the Queen at a glittering Buckingham Palace reception attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Guests from the worlds of sport, fashion, show business and the arts were invited to the event held to launch the UK-India Year of Culture 2017, marking the close ties between the two nations.
