  • This event has passed.

The Piece Hall is helping communities across Calderdale celebrate Diwali with a daylong festival of music, food, dance and of course light.

The Festival of Lights is observed by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world.

It also coincides with harvest and new year celebrations, and marks new beginnings, the triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness.

The Courtyard will be alive with traditional Indian music and dance, alongside vegetarian food stalls, family crafts and even a meditation session.

Annapurna Indian Dance will be presenting a magical afternoon of traditional performances.

Delicious, warming Indian street food will be available from Simply Delish, Mumbai Bites, Shree Krishna Vada Pav and Kenyan Chevdo authentic Indian Bhel Puri.

A simple and accessible mindfulness session will be run by world renowned Black Lotus who are famed for their impactful meditation app and mission to create a better world for today and tomorrow.

And embracing the spirit of the festival, lantern making workshops will be held suitable for the whole family.

The event is free to enter and takes place on Saturday 6 November 2021 between 11am – 4pm.
