As Dishoom’s love of Diwali has grown, so have the festivities, moving from family entertainment within the restaurants, to last year’s event being held at Kings Cross, just as it is this year, where hundreds of people join together in joyous revelry.
Dishoom loves sharing the traditions of the festival of light with Londoners. Although Diwali falls on Sunday 30th October, Dishoom will be lighting up slightly earlier, on the 23rd. This promises to be the biggest and best celebration yet with cool live music, fantastic dishes from some of London’s best street food providers and an abundance of entertainment for family and friends of all ages.
This event is an afternoon to evening shindig. As darkness falls, you’ll be submerged in an atmospheric setting. First class artists including headline act and musician Shammi Pithia will grace your ears. Tickling your tastebuds will be food vendors, among which will be Sticky Bundits, Curry On and Simmons Creperie, as well as Dishoom, who’ll be serving up their delicious house chai and mithai (Indian Sweets).
Transformed by henna and face painting, adults and children alike can get hands on with decorating a collaborative rangoli (traditional Indian floor art), while children can also join in with a special Diwali light workshop.
Dishoom will continue the celebrations in their restaurants serving a very special dish of Jackfruit Biryani.
Diwali with Dishoom takes place on Sunday 23rd October.
Dishoom will be serving up their special dish from Sunday 23rd – Sunday 30th October.
