Holi Festival of Colour - SOLD OUT
Time Out says
Posted: Tue Jun 11 2013
Hindus may well balk at this hijacking of their Holi festival, particularly since its organisers have shown a cheeky disregard for its original intentions: to celebrate the start of spring. The official Holi day – when Hindus come together in the street to throw coloured water and powdered dye – was back in March (and largely celebrated in India), but this pretender is taking place on a mid-August weekend in London’s Battersea Power Station. In fairness, its aims are noble: to adopt the spirit of Holi and to bring people of various faiths and backgrounds together in a shared experience. For most, though, it’ll be a chance to get dirty in dyes, chuck about a bit of colour, and litter Instagram with some Sony advert-style photos. The event has now sold out, visit the Facebook fan page for more info. Also all gulal (that’s the coloured powder) must be bought on site. Age 18+.
