Diwali at the Museum
Diwali is the five-day festival of lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. The word Diwali comes from the Sanskrit word Deepavali, meaning ‘rows of lighted lamps’. It is a festival of new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness.
This event on Saturday 11 November is free for people of all ages and cultures to learn about and get involved with the celebratory spirit of the festival.
