Highlights from Saturday's Diwali celebrations
 
Diwali celebrations began at 10am on Saturday, with stalls on the Market Square and the BID Hosts on hand to welcome visitors and help with events.
 
The day continued as community groups entertained crowds from 1pm. The excitement built throughout the day and peaked with the Lantern Procession.
 
Puppets designed by Festive Road, including Harminder and Shanti, led the way and were followed by local school children who held up colourful Diwali Lanterns they had crafted during workshops in the lead-up to the event. The BID was delighted to support this event, providing the lamp post banners and stage banner. Thank you to the Salvation Army on Gold Street for their Diwali inspired window display.
