Event:
An En-lightening Night


The Festival of Lights is a Hindu festival held in autumn. In India, it is called Diwali and celebrates the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness. The Festival of Lights has come to be celebrated in many countries, and has started to be shared amongst different cultures. Although technically a week late, The Horniman Museum are embracing the festival in their own way. On the 6th November you can join them for a night of music, dance, film, art and performances celebrating light and the Festival of Lights traditions from around the world.

With entertainment from 6.30pm - 9.30pm, tickets are 5 (over 18s only) and includes a mysterious sound and light installation, an IndoJazz concert, Bollywood performances and workshops, x-ray tours, light photography, and a solo circus performance called Pixualism, which uses cutting edge light technology. There will also be a screening of five animated shorts by filmmakers from the UK, US, Turkey, and Denmark.
