Diwali in Trafalgar Square 2014

Every year we are invited by the Mayor of London to perform at the spectacular Diwali in Trafalgar Square. Diwali in Trafalgar Square is London’s biggest Diwali celebration, celebrating the annual Hindu festival.

This year we had to pull out all the stops since we had to top last year’s smash performance. Despite some terrible weather conditions, in true spectacular Bollywood style, we dance in the rain and gave the grows who turned up in the 1000s a fabulous show to remember. See our video below.

What is Diwali?

Also known as the festival of lights, the word Diwali means rows of lights and is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and some Buddhists every autumn. Those celebrating the festival of lights illuminate their homes with Diyas (lamps) and colourful lights to celebrate the victory of good over evil. During Diwali celebrants also exchange gifts and sweets also known as mithai.

Celebrations of Diwali can be traced back to ancient India, and it is likely that the original festival took place over a harvest period.

Diwali is celebrated over 5 days consisting of:

  • Day One – Dhantera (Day of Fortune)
  • Day Two – Kali Chaudas / Naraka Chaturdasi (Day of KNowledge)
  • Day Three – Diwali (Day of Light)
  • Day Four – Annakut (New Year)
  • Day FIve – Bhai Duj (Day of Love Between Siblings)
