Diwali Celebration

Diwali Celebration

There are currently no planned performances.

This event was last at Norden Farm more than a year ago, in November 2012.

An exciting new event, curated by dancer/teacher Devika Shangari to celebrate Diwali.

Known as the Festival of Lights Diwali traditionally marks celebration of the return of Lord Ram to his home and his victory against the 10 headed demon Ravan. Diwali is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains and is well-known for the beautiful array of fireworks, candles and lamps.

Internationally renowned Bhangra musician Bobby Panesar will be performing on the Dhol drum. Bobby has worked with Peter Gabriel and Bollywood Brass Band. He will be joined by Tabla students.

Other performers include Norden Farm's Bollywood and Kathak groups plus the Fusion Dance Academy.

One of the highlights of the evening will be the retelling of the Diwali story by Hindu Priest Pandit Naresh.

There will also be henna and craft stalls, plus a raffle to win one of two hampers from La Peach.
