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 and of course, a spectacular fireworks display at 6.30pm that will have every face turned towards the skies.

3:00pm Cultural show begins
6:30pm Grand Fireworks Display
7.00pm Free Vegetarian Meal (Prasadam)
7:30pm Offering of Candles

Note: darshan is available throughout the day from 12 noon until 9.30pm

Parking advice

Please be aware that we expect significant traffic levels entering and exiting the temple, bear with the volunteers in the car park.

  • Please do not park in roads surrounding the temple there is always plenty of parking available in the temple grounds
  • Parking in the village and surrounding roads creates congestion for entry and exit of vehicles and potential disharmony with the local residents
  • Please note there will be queues entering and exiting the temple at peak hours please plan accordingly – especially after the fireworks display
  • Please listen to and bear with the volunteers at all times

Immediately after the fireworks display there will be Dharshan, prasadam served in the tent .
