Northampton Diwali Lights 2017 back to all events

Organised by the Indian Hindu Welfare Organisation (IWHO), and supported by Northampton Borough Council, this year’s celebrations will take place on the Market Square in Northampton and will include food and information stalls, fun activities, entertainment and the spectacular lantern procession.

In advance of the day, Festive Road has run lantern-making workshops with children from seven local schools; who will join the Borough Council’s Youth Forum and organisers in the lantern parade, which starts at All Saints Church at 6pm.

Crowd-pleasing light structures will form part of the parade, including Festive Road’s Harminder the Elephant, and Shanti the big bird, as well as two new giant puppets of Rama and Sita.
