Dussehra and Sharad Poonam (Joint Celebration) – Tuesday 24th October 2023

Timings for evening garba – 8pm to 10pm daily.

This year’s entry fee is £10 for everyone who is 11 years and over for the whole season, or £3 for a single day entry. Entry for all children up to, and including, the age of 10 is free. There is no entry fee for Sharad Poonam on Friday 27th October. Please note that there is no exemption or reduction in fees for members or life members. The fees are applicable to everyone.

Labhuben will manage the diary for each day’s snack, so donors please register with her. There will be only one main donor per day. We ask that family members of donors help with distributing their sponsored snacks whenever possible.

Our daily Navratri Aarti at will be at 9.30pm, and the main aarti will be performed by the family who donates the snack on that day. Any additional yajmans who wish to perform aarti on any given day should write register at the front desk and pay the set donation of £21 for each addition thali that we provide.

We very much look forward to seeing you and your loved ones for another fun packed festival.

Jay Bhavani! Jay Ambe!
