Festival of Light

One of the most stimulating events set to happen this Halloween season is Robin Hill’s popular electric woods event. The Festival of Light draws inspiration from Diwali, and is coming back to help celebrate India’s independence.

The show will use amazing and creatively themed sound, colour, light, and entertainment. If there’s any event that brilliantly captures Indian culture, it’s this one. Everyone who attends shall have the chance to experience the magic and colours as well as the flavours that India is famous for. Find out more at
