On Wednesday 2nd November, the St Hugh’s dining hall was transformed for its annual Diwali festivities. Diwali – also known as the festival of lights – is a celebration of the triumph of good over evil; light over darkness.
The Hall was decorated and brightly lit with diyas (clay lamps) adorned with multi-coloured flower petals, and a colourful rangoli design. The festivities included some delicious traditional Indian food and a Bollywood dance performance by graduate students of St Hugh’s. Our thanks go to Andrew Dhawan and Purnima Kumar for their choreographic talents, the catering team for all their hard work, a nd Amanda Moss for her organisation.
