After two years of minimal celebrations, we are delighted to be hosting our annual Navratri celebrations is our usual grand fashion.


Entry prices will be as follows for the whole ten day period: Up to 9 years of age, Free. 10 to 15 years, £5. 16 years and over, £10. A one day ticket is £5 for anyone aged 10 or over. There are no separate adult and child rates. If buying a ticket for a child, then a child pass will be issued. All passes are stricty non-transferable under any circumstances.

You will not be required to complete a form this year, as the entry price does not include SEHA membership. We will, however, maintain a list of names of all those who purchase a ticket for our own records. This will be destroyed at the end of the event.

Membership is for those who attend SEHA regularly, and has an additional fee of £5. If you wish to become a member then please make contact with the committee.

AARTI/SNACKS – If you wish to provide snacks on any particular day, then please see Labhuben Kukadia to book your day. We cannot allow multiple donors on any day. Slots will be booked on a first come, first served basis. This also applies to additional aarti thalis. If you wish to perform an additional aarti on any given day, then please book this with the front desk, and make the £21 payment when booking.

SAMUH AARTI – Coupons will be sold at the front desk for our usual price of £5. Please ensure you purchase your coupon BEFORE you come into the main hall for the celebrations that day. This is so that we have sufficient time to prepare the correct number of thalis.

RAFFLES – We have reduced the number of days on which a raffle will be held. This year, we will hold a raffle on Friday 30th September, Saturday 1st October, and Monday 3rd October. We will also hold a raffle on Saturday 8th October as part of our Sharad Poonam celebrations. Please do support the temple by buying tickets, which will be sold on each day that a raffle is being held.

We very much look forward to seeing you for our celebrations this year.

Jay Ambe!
