Festival of Light Inspired by Diwali - What's On, Isle of Wight


Voted the BEST EVENT IN THE UK by Day Out With The Kids, this autumn, you can join the finale of Diwali at Robin Hill's award-winning electric woods, open from 6pm - 10pm on selected dates between 27th September – 2nd November. 

Celebrating the finale of the vibrant Diwali theme, you’ll find yourself marvelling at the epic Electro-Light Circus, returning more intense than before, it’s sure to bring this event to a spectacular close! The incredible show featuring mind-boggling light tricks, acrobatics and circus skills is a must-see for visitors of all ages. 

NEW for 2019, visitors can take part in The Spice Cinema, a five-minute documentary surrounding the spice trade, accompanied by sensory 'zome structures' where customers will be surrounded by the smells of spice! This year, discover the Chakra Star, hidden at the centre of the event and marvel at the wonder of the seven chakras.

Uncover the fun and thrills of the family-favourite Holi powder arena and the new Neon Jungle; right through to the calm and serene celestial feel of the Woodland Ponds water projections and stunning illuminations.

Samarkand was known as the golden city as it was one of the riches cities along the silk road. Today we recreate the hustle and bustle and lustre of this great ancient city through interpretive lighting and sounds within our sunken walkway on the edge of our ancient woodland. Be prepared to be blown away as you take in this year’s show piece lighting installation.

Amidst all the exciting activity, take time to enjoy the authentic Indian menu of curries and kebabs, Asian sweet treats and traditional teas, providing a true taste of India. 

The kids can get involved with Lantern Decorating workshops, indulge in some traditional henna art and marvel at the ambient street entertainment.
