Welcome the spring season to Durham with a special Holi Festival! Holi is the Indian Spring Festival also known as the Festival of Colours, because one of the ways to celebrate is to throw brightly coloured powders over your friends and family! Join us on this special day to enjoy powder throwing sessions, craft activities, storytelling, music, rangoli drawing and more!

The event will include timed powder throws with a free environmentally and skin-kind powder sachet of brightly coloured Holi powder for each participant. Alongside powder throws, there will also be free craft activities with a ticket.

Charges apply. Ticket booking is essential.

We do hope that you will come to the Oriental Museum and celebrate with us.

Please contact Charlotte at the Oriental Museum on 0191 3345691 or by email at oriental.museum@durham.ac.uk for more information about this event.
