Event Details

Happy Holi!

Saturday, 3 March 2018 , 12:00 to 17:00
Oriental Museum

Celebrate Holi at the Oriental Museum with free Holi crafts and activities.

Thank you for booking tickets to Holi Festival.

Unfortunately, due to extremely poor weather conditions that are forecast to last beyond Saturday 3rd March, it is with regret that we have had to change our plans for Holi Festival.

For reasons of health and safety, there will now be no outdoor powder throws, or any other outdoor events.

However, there will still be crafts and music inside the museum and we hope that you will still join us for these indoor events. You can hear the traditional story of Holi, enjoy Holi-themed craft activities, and explore our South Asia and South East Asia galleries.

We will also have some sachets of colourful holi powder available for sale at the Museum, if you wish to purchase some to use in a safe outdoor space.

If you have already booked via Eventbrite, we will fully refund the cost of your ticket. The indoor events on Saturday will be free of charge.

We apologise for any inconvenience this change of plan may have caused.

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