Diwali 2011 Celebrations at Curve

Last week saw the largest scale Diwali celebrations at Curve to date. These formed part of city-wide festivities in Leicester, home to the biggest Diwali celebrations outside of India!

The events included three studio productions, a national South Asian dance symposium, a free saree exhibition and free foyer entertainment at ‘CurveBall’

The Saree exhibition on the mezzanine, curated by Belgrave Road retailer Anokhi Sarees.
The exhibition was opened on Diwali by Councillor Manjula Sood and three generations of the Modha family, who own Anokhi Sarees.

Watch highlights from Pukaar News here:

‘Curveball’ offers free foyer entertainment on the last Friday of the month. For Diwali on Friday 28 October, Curve’s foyer was brought to life by Bollywood dancing accompanied by the World Groove Orchestra.

The events had a great response from audiences and Bachchan Haule Haule and Amaas enjoyed sell out performances.

If you experienced any Diwali events in Leicester, let us know.

We’re already looking forward to next year’s Diwali!
