Diwali is a big deal in Leicester, not just for members of the Hindu, Sikh and Jain communities, but for everyone who loves a party – or great food. Sunday 13 October 2019 is switch-on day for the famous lights along ‘The Golden Mile’ and two weeks later Diwali Day itself is Sunday 27 October this year. Celebrate Diwali 2019 with us – on campus and in the city.
