Light is the everlasting source of life, and is celebrated by many cultures around the globe. During the short days of winter, many of these cultures partake in festivals to celebrate the beauty and vitality of light, such as Diwali - the Festival of Lights. In an effort to bring together the different communities within Aylesbury - regardless of an individual’s faith - we plan to make this year’s event a vibrant spectacle of dance and activity. With a myriad of performances from dancers, bands and buskers, as well as an array of local stallholders and world cuisine.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The wider community can came together to celebrate, learn, experience and understand the Indian culture. Last year we had to be very creative and delivered a very successful virtual event over four weeks attracting visitors from across the globe We have invited various groups to take part, including schools, community and charity groups, and we welcome anyone wishing to take part. By also giving businesses promotion and sponsorship opportunities. People who get involved through our volunteer program also benefit from working with a multi-skilled environment. Economic opportunities for local vendors and businesses that have trade and sponsorship opportunities. More understanding and appreciation from Indian and non Indian communities to embrace each others differences
