There will be no Fireworks, Dramas, Stage show or any other festivities.

The Bhaktivedanta Manor Festival Committee has made a decision to cancel the Diwali Festival, including the firework display and other festivities scheduled for Sunday 8th November 2015. An assessment of the car parking facilities was undertaken this morning. The areas of field used for car parking is water-logged, posing safety concerns for the public.

With the expected number of worshippers and vehicles on site, it would be difficult to park cars in the waterlogged field. We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment (especially to children) this decision may have caused. We appreciate the firework display is a significant feature of the Diwali celebrations at Bhaktivedanta Manor. However, the safety of the public is paramount, we therefore appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Diwali, meaning ‘festival of lights’, is one of the most widely celebrated occasions in the year. Diwali is observed not only by Hindus but also by Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs. The central theme for Hindus is derived from the epic Ramayana, but the festival also marks the traditional New Year’s Eve.

Diwali is celebrated with elaborate firework displays, candles and lamps. Join us at Bhaktivedanta Manor for a colourful stage show with drama and traditional dance.

Cultural Programme 2:00pm – 6:30pm
Due to bad weather the Grand Fireworks Display has been cancelled.
