DMU’s free Holi Colour Festival event will take place in Bede Park on Friday 9 March.
Holi, the Hindu festival of spring, is marked with a heady mix of colour and fun across the world, spreading a message of peace and love for all. Previous years’ events at Bede Park, next to the DMU campus, have seen hundreds of students and staff join in the fun, turning the area into a sea of bright pink, blue, green and yellow powdered paint.
The event starts at 4pm on Friday 9 March and it’s free to enter. There will be a DJ and live music providing Bollywood beats and dance tunes, as well as a free colour packet per person (subject to availability, so get there early!). Additional packets of colour will be available to buy, which will raise funds for charity.
Everyone is welcome and you can spread the word on social media using the hashtag #DMUisHoli.
The afternoon’s activities are organised by the DMU Indian Society, #DMUlocal and staff from the School of Engineering.
