The Diwali celebrations in Leicester are said to be the biggest and best outside of India

We headed down to the bustling Golden Mile ahead of the big firework display and were very lucky to get a table at Bobby’s vegetarian restaurant

Despite being stuffed full of tasty Indian food, as we left we couldn’t help but linger around their colourful sweets counter

Stepping back out onto Belgrave Road (which had been closed to traffic) we joined around 35,000, looking up at the skies at a fantastic firework display

Happy Diwali everyone!

    T and I intended to head down yesterday… but got sucked in by the lure of the sofa! These photos are amazing, I’m wishing we had made it now. Just out of interest, what time did you go?

      Haha – as the days get colder it is increasingly difficult to head outside!

      We got to Belgrave around 6.30pm – just in time to grab a table at Bobby’s

      Then the fireworks weren’t until about 8.45pm – Cossington Park was beyond packed so we escaped to watch from a side street…
