The Festival of Light
In the Autumn of 2018, Robin Hill’s popular electric woods event, Festival of Light inspired by Diwali, is back celebrating India’s independence with stunning, creatively themed light, colour, sound and entertainment that captures the many aspects of Indian culture: wild India, modern India, decorative India, historical India, urban India, celebration and spiritual India.
Every evening from 29th September – 3rd November, 6pm – 10pm, visitors can experience the lush colours, flavours and magic of the Asian sub-continent set in Robin Hill’s glorious autumnal ancient woodland as they venture on a journey of discovery of India.
From the bright lights and digital feel of modern India, venture into the wild and enchanting forests, discover elephants, tigers, monkeys … creatively brought to life. Walk down the highway and find yourself amidst the hustle and bustle of urban life and Indian bazaars … absorb the aromas of Indian cuisine. Then escape to a spiritual, more serene setting in our Woodland ponds where you can relax and enjoy quiet contemplation before taking part in the celebrations; party to Bollywood music and enjoy the colourful kaleidoscopic fun! Your journey continues through decorative India where you’ll discover beautiful examples of art, murals and light shows and then to draw your cultural journey to a close, we take a nostalgic look back at India’s history creatively curated through light and sound.
Amidst all this exciting activity, take time to enjoy the enhanced authentic Indian menu of curries and kebabs, Asian sweets, and traditional teas; providing a true ‘taste of India’ in the exciting setting of an Indian bazaar.
