About Diwali:

Diwali, or Deepavali, marks the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil. Rooted in ancient stories and traditions, it’s a time of illumination, both literally, with homes and streets adorned with lamps and candles, and metaphorically, as families come together in a spirit of love and gratitude.

Past Festivities

Holi 2023 ✨

I was curious about Holi, having only seen it in films. The association's Holi event was a riot of colours and laughter! I not only had fun but also gained a deeper appreciation for the festival and its significance. Can't wait for the next one!


Thank you so much to the wonderful Yeovil Indian Association & Friends for inviting me to join in their Diwali celebrations. I could not have been made more welcome. Great food - my mouth is only just returning back to normal, great fun, and a whole new set of friends.

It was vibrant and exciting. Thank you for making me feel part of your family and celebrations.

The cultural festivities we organise are a bridge – between the old and the new, the East and the West, tradition and evolution. They are a testament to our rich heritage and our embrace of the global community we are a part of in Yeovil. Join us in these celebrations, and be part of a story that spans millennia and continents.
