Come and join us to celebrate the Hindu Festival of Lights with a community procession through Bury Town Centre.

Taking place at 6.30pm on Sunday 30 October, lanterns, dancers and large-scale puppets will process from the Robert Peel Statue, through The Rock and back again in this joyful, friendly and inclusive community event.

All are welcome! You can choose to line the streets and watch the parade as it passes or come and make a lantern and join the procession yourself. The link to book onto one of our lantern-making workshops is here.
