This event sees the Mela organisers create a one of a kind ‘Night Carnival’ featuring extraordinary performance, fabulously-lit floats and lots of community participation, all taking place in Southall, the oldest South Asian community in Europe.

Southall Carnival of Lights will be a secular celebration inspired by Diwali – the Hindu festival of light which signifies hope over despair.

As with any London Mela event, there are artists at the heart of this carnival. The procession will be led by The Dhol Company accompanied by the Munde Punjab De Bhangra Dancers. They will be followed by over 120 lit up paper lanterns made by 240 school children from Southall primary schools and their families.

Joining the parade are the engineers of imagination, Emergency Exit Arts who will present their magical Firebird sculpture and Nutkhut‘s fabulous stilkwalkers and Swyron. They will be promenading with Jay Kumar’s Bolly Brollys featuring Cirque Bijou’s illuminated umbrellas and Circus Flambe’s spectacular fire performers.
