The Nottingham Bangladesh Centre is the working name of the Bangladesh Welfare and Cultural Association of Nottingham.
We take a collaborative working philosophy and are always seeking to work with local Bangladeshi organisations and other like-minded organisations to promote activities of interest to the local community.
Nottingham Bangla School
Nottingham Bangladesh Centre operated the Nottingham Bangla School from 1982 in a number of venues including Bentick Primary School, John Carrol Leisure Centre and Bangladesh House on Radford road with over 100 pupils taking GCSE Bengali with a large number of Grade A and A*. This included one Bangladesh Centre Pupil achieving the highest mark in the UK.
Currently Nottingham Bangla School runs on Saturdays at midday at Bakersfield Community Centre in conjunction with Maths and English Hub and Taekwondo lessons as a collaboration with Bangladeshi Community in Nottingham. See the facebook page for Nottingham Bangla School here

Sport in the Community
We actively promote sports activities in the Bangladeshi Community from cricket coaching to friendly matches between other Bangladeshi organisations. The Birmingham High Commission Vs Nottingham Bangladesh Centre cricket took place for over 10 years organised by Sabbir Hossain and the Bangladesh Assistant High Commissioner in Birmingham.
Nottingham Bangladesh Centre has been a partner of Bangladesh Sports Association UK - with Sabbir Hossain serving as its chairman. The 4th Bangladesh Sports Association UK Sports mela was in Birmingham in conjunction with British Bangladesh Chess Association and We are Bangladesh Cricket Supporters and was a huge success
In 2015 a local Bangladeshi Cricket Team 'Bengal United' was formed who in 2021 were champions of their division in the Nottinghamshire Cricket League.
