Diwali Festival 2020

This website contains all you need to celebrate with the Oriental Museum and our wonderful team of community volunteers to bring Diwali 2020 to life through our collections. This includes videos of traditional children's storytelling, tasty recipes to try at home, craft ideas and activities and much more to bring Diwali 2020 to life. Please share your personal Diwali experiences using the #diwali2020 so we can all join in the celebrations!

We would like to thank all our community partners, university partners and volunteers who helped make this online event a possibility.
