Holi is a Hindu festival also known as the Festival of Love and the Festival of Colours which ties in to the gorgeous display of colourful saris we have in the Central Library at the moment. It also marks the start of Spring.

If you are lucky enough to visit India during Holi you will find the streets full of colour. Each colour represents something, with the brightest colours being the most popular. You will, however find an absence of white and black.

During the Holi Festival streets will be full of people dancing, throwing colours at each other (coloured powders and water), lots of music and celebration.

Come in and see the beautiful display we have in the Central Library on the First Floor kindly put together by Anita from the Central Indian Association.
