BURA NA MANO, HOLI HAI
This Sunday, Dishoom hosts its annual party celebrating Hindu spring festival, Holi.

If you've ever dined at Dishoom, you'll know how delicious and the Bombay cuisine is, but at its core is a fun-loving approach to life, hence the celebratory Holi event.

Holi, Dishoom,
Gulal-throwing


I'd never heard of Holi, until a friend told me about the way she used to celebrate the Hindu festival as a child. I didn't believe her, but it sounded great. Holi is a time and space where you lose yourself in the moment and go a bit crazy with gulal (brightly coloured powder), by throwing it at people in the festival and chase each other around. Sounds like playground fun to me, and I can't wait to join in.

Holi is a chance to embrace your inner child, and let loose for a couple of hours (and get covered in colour). As Dishoom say: "At its heart, it's a day to let your hair down in the company of family and good friends." - Dishoom.

Tickets include gulal (coloured powder) to throw at revellers, drinks and snacks. There will also be a storytelling performance by renowned Dishoom storyteller Vayu Naidu who will take to the stage to bring the legend of Holi to life. Children and adults alike will be captivated by her performance.

Tickets cost 15.00, but you really can't put a price on the fun you'll have.
