Hey everyone! This year will be my first Diwali abroad and I'm a bit clueless about the celebrations in the city here. Can someone please direct me to Diwali celebrations in London over the weekend? Wish everyone a happy and prosperous Diwali!
0Hi Sanjeev, I know there is a big celebration happening in Trafalgar Square! It looks like it has a lot going on and best of all it's free to attend! You can find out more about it here https://goo.gl/IEAPIl
0Sanjiv - London Business School, LSE and other universities, including graduate programs do good get togethers. I would also consider seeing some international charities of the indian diaspora based in london such as TiE, and Pratham, as they do annual diwali parties also. Hope you find something suitable!
The best place to celebrate Diwali in London would be to head to Trafalgar Square. There is an event held here every year to celebrate Diwali and attracts over 35,000 people. It is a great way to celebrate this festival, is free to enter and involves:
Indian food and snacks
Celebrity performances and appearances
Market with crafts, art, food and henna application
Head to Trafalgar Square to celebrate the festival of light in October 2018.
