Diwali – Sun 7th Nov

2pm – 7:30pm – Tickets will be required during these times to enter Bhaktivedanta Manor. 

10am-2pm & 7:30pm-9.30pm – NO tickets required during this time.

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 Diwali  is derived from the epic Ramayana.

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

Fireworks Cancelled

Due to bad weather conditions, we regret to inform everyone that the fireworks for Diwali at Bhaktivedanta Manor (Sun, 7th November 2021) have been cancelled. 

Darshan and Prasadam will still go ahead on the day.

Unfortunately, as the rain has fallen, it has rendered the parking fields inoperable, meaning we cannot properly host the number of expected visitors. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Thank you for your understanding. Hare Krishna.

Yes. A ticket is required to enter Bhaktivedanta Manor during festival times (2pm – 7:30pm). No ticket, no entry!

What happens if I arrive without a ticket?

In order to enter Bhaktivedanta Manor on this day, a ticket is required. If tickets are still available, we may ask you to book a ticket online via your phone. If not, unfortunately you may not be able to enter.

Can I come before or after the event time (2pm – 7:30pm)?

Temple is open for visiting from 10am-2pm & 7:30pm to 9.30pm (no tickets required during this time)

Yes. Everyone is welcome to come to Bhaktivedanta Manor before 2pm, and after 7:30pm. But if you arrive during the event time (2pm – 7:30pm), then you will need an entry ticket to enter Bhaktivedanta Manor, as without a ticket in those times, you will not be allowed entry.
