Half-term Festival of Light and Colour at Basildon Park, 14 to 31 October 2023.
As the days are dimming, Basildon Park is turning up the colour and light. This October half-term, visitors can experience the glamour of Basildon Park as it is illuminated by light and colour.
Enter into the glowing interior of the house and find rooms illuminated by colourful lanterns, diyas, tealights, torans and projections.
The children’s trail and activity in the house both explore celebrations of light and colour as we head into autumn.
Children can create their very own vibrant rangoli bookmark and can take part in a house trail which explores the traditions of celebrating light amidst darkness.
A local artist will create a rangoli in the garden room within their India & Me exhibition, which will remain on display throughout the festival.
Get inspired for Diwali celebrations later this year, and return on 11 to 12 of November to see a celebratory rangoli display.
