Highfields Park Outdoor Event Diwali spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil and hope over despair. As part of this first partnership event with Lakeside, Nottingham City Council have commissioned artist Sarah Turner to work in schools across the city to create Diyas which - in the tradition of Diwali (festival of lights) - will be floated on to Highfields Lake, creating a spectacle of tiny lights at 6pm. Prior to that time, there will also be participatory workshops in rangoli, glowing bracelets, and other traditional activities. In the evening there will be a concert featuring Wajahat Khan & Allegri String Quartet (tickets £16 and £14, click HERE for details). Diwali Workshops Rangoli for Everyone Baubles, Bangles & Beads
