Celebrate Happiness, Prosperity & Joy in Aylesbury
You are invited to Aylesbury’s Festival of Lights on Saturday 13 November 2021
This community celebration will be held in the refurbished rooms and delightful walled garden of Discover Bucks Museum, so come along and join in. We promise a colourful blend of music, dance, stalls and mindful activities.
The Festival of Lights is a free community event, established by Holy Cow Community in partnership with Aylesbury Town Council. It is inspired by Diwali, a Hindu festival and everyone is welcome.
Aylesbury’s Festival of Lights
The first Festival of Lights community event was held in 2017 and we built on its success in 2018 and 2019. Lockdown didn’t knock us back, but it did make us think creatively and technically! We overcame the restrictions with a wonderful digital festival which attracted an amazing 9,500 views. You can view highlights of these events on the Holy Cow Community YouTube channel.
We are delighted to return with an actual event in 2021, but with everyone’s wellbeing in mind, things have been scaled back. Just one venue, but there is still plenty to get involved in.
Get Involved in the Festival of Lights
We need you!
The event is only possible because of the enthusiasm of committed trustees, community volunteers and talented performers. They have prepared and delivered a varied and inclusive programme that appeals to all people of all ages, cultures, spirituality and abilities.
If you have time and skills to share, we would love for you to help us with the final preparations or activities on the day. We are looking for:
Can you attend virtual weekly meetings? We need committee members with good contacts, fresh ideas and a willingness to take on actions.
Can you lead activities or make everyone feel welcome on the day? We need team players with plenty of enthusiasm and a hands-on approach!
Help us get the word out. Are you a social media whizz or do you work in a community setting? Please share our posts and encourage participation.
