celebrating Diwali in Trafalgar Square

Posted on October 13, 2011 by

Celebrate Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights this weekend. Why not head down to Trafalgar Square for Diwali on the Square, a fantastic event packed with lots of fun things to see and do? There will be free sarees, dancing, displays, stalls and a tasty food court! The event is free and starts from 2pm.

Be sure to get hold of a copy of Bright Baby Touch and Feel Diwali, too. Each page features a familiar Diwali picture including oil lamps, fantastic fireworks and Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. It’s an ideal book for parents to share with their young children as a first step to discovering Diwali traditions.
