A CHILDREN’S day will be held next week in honour of Diwali – the Hindu festival of lights.
Children are invited to the Tolson Museum, Ravensknowle Park, next Thursday, to enjoy music, dance, storytelling and crafts. From 11am until 1pm and then 2pm until 4pm, children will be able to make garlands, Diwali masks, and clay diva lamps.
A henna artist will be at the event and the museum cafe will sell Indian treats.
The day is linked to Life In Transition, a heritage Lottery funded project created with women from the local Indian community in Kirklees. Manasamitra, a Yorkshire-based arts organisation are leading the event.
