Celebrating 70 years of India’s independence
This autumn, Robin Hill’s popular electric woods event, Festival of Light inspired by Diwali, will be celebrating the 70th Anniversary of India’s independence with stunning, creatively themed light, colour, sound and entertainment that captures the many aspects of Indian culture.
Every evening from September 30th to November 4th, from 6.00pm to 10.00pm, visitors can experience the lush colours, flavours and magic of the Asian sub-continent set in Robin Hill’s glorious autumnal ancient woodland as they venture on a journey of discovery of India. Plus, no Festival of Light event would be the same without the magic of Holi powder, so come and get colourful!
Venture into the wild and enchanting forests, discover elephants and tigers, before finding yourself amidst the hustle and bustle of urban life, Indian bazaars and aromas of authentic Indian cuisine. Then escape to a spiritual, more serene setting to enjoy quiet contemplation, before taking part in the celebrations. Journey through decorative India where you’ll discover beautiful examples of art, murals and light shows. Finally, take a nostalgic look back at India’s history creatively curated through light and sound.
During half term, October 21st to 29th, there will be additional entertainment including Lantern decorating, Rangoli art workshops, Rama & Sita’s Lantern Parade, Dr DJ: the South’s No.1 Bollywood Bhangra Experience, A Spellbinding Aerial Silks Display, Wings by Twilight, a stunning birds of prey experience and much more!
