THE LINE-UP

LIVE MUSIC
British Asian singer-songwriter Abi Sampa will headline the Diwali celebrations this year with her beautiful Qawwali, Carnatic and Hindustani music. She’ll also be joined by the most-talented Shammi Pithia and Vik Sankadecha playing the tabla.

SPOKEN WORD AND POETRY

4 BROWN GIRLS WHO WRITE will perform a unique Diwali story-telling, alongside the extraordinary talent of  Shruti Chauhan, and sets from BananaSharma, Aman Grover and Sophia Thakur.

SUPERB STREET FOOD

Street Feast’s finest traders (Up In My Grill, White Men Can’t Jerk, Club Mexicana, and Fundi Pizza, to name a few) will lay on a top vegetarian foodie line-up. Plus we’ll be serving a HUGE Dishoom Jackfruit Biryani and delicious Pau Bhaji. All washed down with a tasty array of drinks – from cocktails, beers, and wine to bone-dry tipples.

And there’ll be a fantastic live art installation and mehndi (henna) artists.
