Diwali Day


Diwali Day

The Golden Mile will be bathed in light throughout the festive period until Diwali Day, when the celebrations continue at Belgrave Road just ahead of Belgrave Circle.

The stage programme runs from 6pm to 8.30pm and features a stunning programme of live performers and attractions bringing alive the sights and sounds of the Indian sub-continent.

The evening will culminate in a stunning aerial firework display over the Golden Mile at about 8.10pm, choreographed by local pyrotechnics company Bright Spark Fireworks.

Don't forget the Wheel of Light is located near the main stage on Belgrave Road, with a chance of stunning views over the Golden Mile's glittering lights from a 110-foot vantage point. On Diwali Day it will open for rides from 1pm until 11pm and will remain in place until Sunday 10 November.

Stalls will be placed along nearby Rendall Road, which runs alongside the park and will be open from 3pm to 9pm.

Take a look at the 2019 Diwali Guide for all the fantastic events taking place!
