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.

After last year's online event, Leicester City Council's annual Diwali celebrations are back on the streets for 2021. To reduce the need for people to congregate in one place there will be giant screens showcasing cultural programs on Belgrave Road and Cossington Street Recreation Ground. If you've recently moved to Leicester - from up the road or the other side of the planet - this is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the city's rich culture. And to try some great Indian cuisine!

Diwali Day falls on Thursday 4 November this year.

We are proud to be sponsoring the 2021 Diwali celebrations as part of our Centenary year.
