Diwali in Trafalagar Square

What a wonderful day at Diwali in Trafalgar Square! Huge thanks to all the scroll carriers who represented their areas from Kew to Southend and to Jane Ford for choreographing the procession. The sun shone on the huge crowd and the scrolls looked amazing against the backdrop of heritage buildings accompanied by colourful dancers from the Sai School of Dance and drummers from the London School of Dhol.

See the ITV news coverage of the event HERE.  And our post-event press release HERE

It’s a day we won’t forget in a hurry!

Thanks to:

  • Ranu Mehta-Radia  and the Sai School of Dance
