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.
But of course, like everything else in 2020, the city's Diwali celebrations have been scaled back. The famous lights along the 'Golden Mile' are still happening, but the big public celebrations of the lights switch-on and Diwali Day itself have been cancelled for safety reasons. Instead people are being invited to celebrate a Virtual Diwali from their own home.
Diwali Day falls on Saturday 14 November this year.
