Holi Festival

The most colourful festival in the world

Experience the thrill and excitement of colour filling the air and decorating your clothes, during India’s much-anticipated Holi Festival. Celebrated on 8 March this year, Holi marks the end of winter and a time to gather together. The festivities, which begin with the Holika Dahan bonfire, promise to put a smile (and splatter of colour!) on everyone’s face.
