Holi is a popular ancient Hindu festival, also known as the “Festival of Love”, the “Festival of Colours” and the “Festival of Spring”. The festival celebrates the eternal and divine love of Radha Krishna. It also signifies the triumph of good over evil, as it celebrates the victory of Vishnu as Narasimha Narayana over Hiranyakashipu. It originated and is predominantly celebrated in the Indian, Nepal, Sri – Lank and Myanmar and also other regions of Asia and parts of the Western world through the Hindu diaspora.

Holi celebrates the arrival of spring, the end of winter, the blossoming of love and for many, it is a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships. The festival also celebrates the beginning of a good spring harvest season. It lasts for a night and a day, starting on the evening of the Purnima (Full Moon Day) falling in the Hindu calendar month of Phalguna, which falls around the middle of March.

This event is open to all and free family event full of colours, music and foods. We are also going to hold a few stalls for raffle and boot sales and money raised will go towards the Trust.

All visitors can purchase the colours and foods at the stall.

The event will start at 12.30pm and aim to wrap up at 4pm.
