Diwali Lights Switch On

Diwali Lights Switch On


Diwali Lights Switch On

Join in the festivities with the illumination of the Diwali lights along Belgrave Road, featuring a traditional music and dance programme which includes three performances, created by Curve.

AKADEMI present a contemporary dance performance, inspired by Curve's major new show PINK SARI REVOLUTION. There will also be two community performances with a more traditional Bollywood theme and a magnificent light and fire show, Lantern Glow.

The spectacular aerial firework display will be seen above Leicester's Golden Mile and the surrounding area and after last year's success the wonderful Diwali Village returns to Cossington Street Recreation Ground, helping to make the most of this special day.

The Village will feature children's fun-fair rides, entertainment and a wide range of stalls, including food. Other highlights include the annual Mela Rangoli exhibition, Story of Light and Sufi:Zen.
