The biggest and brightest of all the Hindu celebrations, the ancient festival marks the triumph of light over dark and good over evil and is celebrated across the globe

Monday 21 – Sunday 27 October, Jubilee Park

Inspired by the Indian artwork of Rangoli, where patterns are created using colourful powder paints, we have commissioned Richard Bragg from RB Floral Design, to create a number of striking flower installations, which will float in the water features of Jubilee Park. The floating flower installations, in a selection of sizes and colours, will each have a flickering battery operated candle lit up throughout the week of celebrations.

Monday 21 October, Jubilee Place, Mall Level -1

Leaders in Rangoli art, Leicester Belgrave Mela Arts will be to creating bright and bold colourful patterns on the floor of Jubilee Place using coloured powder paints and coloured chalk. The piece will be created live on Monday 21 October and visitors can view the artwork until Sunday 27 October.

Hindus traditionally draw Rangoli patterns to encourage the Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity – Lakshmi – to enter their home. This year, there will an opportunity for the public to help the artists finish off the design with stencil work.
