Press & Media Coverage

Since 2007 the #NationalNowkaBais has been appeared on news articles in both local/national and international press as well as worldwide. The National Nowka Bais continues to break barriers.

Our aim at Nowka Bais UK when we first started was to Commemorate, Celebrate and
Educate about Bangladesh here in the UK. The UK has many rivers and its association with
water, links greatly with Bangladesh, but for very differing reasons. What we aimed to do with
Nowka Bais is bring awareness of who Bangladesh are as a nation but also to highlight to
existing Bangladeshis here in the UK – that our motherland has beauty and splendour that we
can celebrate and remember here. The Nowka Bais UK was a celebration of traditional boat
racing when we started in 2007 in Oxfordshire – a city which is also globally renowned for its
Varsity Rowing competition against Cambridge.
