The Festival of Light has become an eagerly awaited annual event for the people of Sydenham aimed at increasing community cohesion and community spirit but most importantly bringing an incredible, exciting and fun event to the heart of our small estate. Over the years it has consistently brought together the community in unity for an evening of activities, performances and a firework display. The event takes place around the period of both Diwali and Bonfire Night and is open to interpretation by all attendees.
Working to include all, the event has displays and activities, many of which directly reflect the needs and wants of the local community.
The event has music, dance, funfair, art activities and culminates in a fantastic firework display!
The event will be financially inclusive – the festival and fireworks will be free– many residents on the estate are households with a low income and who are unable to access other seasonal events such as this.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The Festival of light is a truly outstanding multicultural event. The event was created to bring our community together and it really does that. There are people of all ages and walks of life that attend the event and benefit from it.
Sydenham is privileged to be a multicultural and very diverse community and there can at times be racial tension and it is events like this that are reducing those incidents.
Many people in our community do not drive and are unable to attend the big expensive events that happen on the outskirts of Leamington.
The festival of Light is a highly anticipated event in the Sydenham calendar no other event that provides a platform where all members of the community can attend and enjoy.
No other event run on the estate brings so much joy to so many.
