Dishoom's Holi Celebration

Dishoom celebrates Holi

Last year, when Indian mini-chain Dishoom announced the date of its annual Holi festival - a joyful and fun-filled tradition where Hindus celebrate the arrival of spring by throwing brightly coloured powder at each other - tickets sold out in just one day. So put 9 March in your diary if you want to buy tickets for this year’s event, as that morning at 9.30am the tickets will be released.

This year’s festival - which will take place on 29 March from 2-4.30pm opposite Dishoom King’s Cross (on Lewis Cubitt Square, just off Stable Street) - promises to be more fun than ever, with street-food traders such as Pizza Pilgrims, Horn OK Please, Rotli Crew and Lily Vanilli setting up shop alongside the powder party, plus complimentary Indian soft drinks, sweets and lively music, and plenty of other activities. The event will end with a traditional - and colourful - Holi powder fight. Here’s how it went down last year.

Tickets cost £15 for adults and £8 for children, including entry, powder, sweets and soft drinks. Book tickets via from 9.30am on 9 March.
