Where: Old Market Square Nottingham
This event is free


To celebrate the Hindu festival of lights, join in this joyous celebration that marks the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil with art installations, dancers, musicians, workshops and a 3m high Mechanical elephant.

The Old Market Square will become a feast for the senses on Friday night as the Mechanical elephant processes around the area with Dancers and Dhol players. View the beautiful installations including a focal Rangoli piece, have a personalised poem written by a local poet in a Tuk Tuk and pick up a treat at the curry and craft market. 

On Saturday, there will be the opportunity to have a go at making your own Rangoli tile in a large public workshop. Poets will be present to share stories gathered from community workshops and musicians will perform throughout the day to maintain the celebratory atmosphere.
