Tuesday 15 November, 19:00 for 19:30 – 22:00
Often referred to as the festival of lights, or Deepavali, Diwali is a time for religious rituals and sharing traditional stories. It’s also an opportunity to spruce up the home, buy new clothes, and, of course, enjoy parties, feasting and an exchange of gifts. Diwali represents the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness and wisdom over ignorance. Let’s celebrate the ancient legend of Lord Rama’s eventual defeat of the evil spirit Ravana and learn more about this five-day festival, its traditions and ceremonies. Hear why tradition suggests that you should invest in a kitchen appliance and start a new business venture.
Join us for an informal Diwali feast in a private room at Gunpowder Tower Bridge. To get into the spirit of the evening, the dress code is ‘inspired by Bollywood’. Numbers are limited so book soon to be sure of a place.
