Diwali Celebrations

Diwali celebrations in Leicester are one of the biggest outside of India, with over 35,000 people attending the 2016 switch on of the lights on Belgrave Road and more attending Diwali Day itself, in the heart of the city's Asian community. New additions for 2016 included a Diwali Village on Cossington Street Recreation Ground, an aerial firework display above Belgrave Road and an exciting two-week events programme across the city including dance, music, theatre and exhibitions.
