Diwali Festival of LightsPosted 4th November 2023
This annual community festival organised by Indian Hindu Welfare Organisation is now in its 23rd year. Visitors can enjoy cultural activities such as henna painting and saree dressing, while browsing various community stalls and enjoying Indian food and drink.
Live entertainment is set to take place on a stage throughout the day and at 6pm, a magical light parade will begin from Mercers Row and follow a route through the town. Harminder the elephant and Shanti the giant bird are among the large-scale puppets which form this twinkling parade of Hindu Deities, to be joined by local school children and community groups.
