Lucknow Mohotsava Announced With Changed Venue


Much hyped 10 days Lucknow Mohotsava did not happen on it scheduled dates in November/December and this year will be held from 24th January at another Venue, Shilp Gram on Shaheed Path. Not sure how this small venue will be able to accommodate such a large local footfall, but it has been declared now and let’s wait to see how it happens. From being marketed as a tourism festival, how it started, it is now no more than that, a local fair or lets call it a trade fair. This time it is being held along with Uttar Pradesh Divas., With no fixed date schedules, surely tourists can not plan their visit around it and nor are the cultural programmes welcoming for foreign tourists. Cultural Programme details are still awaited from the District Magistrate’s Office and are expected to be declared by next week or so. Tornos, like every year will be organising Non-obligatory Free Transfers for any foreign tourists in the city wanting to attend Lucknow Mohotsava. Requests in this regard may be made by tour operators, travel agents, hotels or guests themselves.
