Madame Tussauds announces first ever Diwali Weekend
London’s world famous Madame Tussauds has announced it will be marking one of South Asia’s most colourful and popularly celebrated festivals, as it launches its first ever Diwali Weekend on 16th and 17th of October 2010.
Guests visiting the Diwali Weekend at Madame Tussauds will enjoy some of the authentic musical traditions of India, including sitar, flute and tabla players as well as traditional dance performed by accomplished classical musicians. And to make the Diwali celebration even more complete, there will be a wide range of delicious Indian mithai’s (sweets) being sold at the Indian sweets hut. The one-weekend-only event will be hosted in the popular ‘World Stage’ area and will join Indian wax figures of Bollywood superstars Shahrukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan.
Diwali, the Indian celebration popularly known as ‘Festival of Lights’ is celebrated by 1 million British Asians as well as Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the globe. Diwali commemorates the triumph of good over evil and ushers in the Hindu New Year. It is celebrated with the coming together of families who share music, food and gifts.
Visitors to the Diwali event will also be able to enjoy all the attractions Madame Tussauds has to offer including the brand new Marvel Super Heroes 4D.
Liz Edwards, PR Manager at Madame Tussauds, said, “Celebrating Diwali at Madame Tussauds on the 16th and 17th October is a tribute to the growing number of South Asian visitors from the UK and abroad who enjoy the attraction and come back year after year to experience it. We also look forward to all our other international guests experiencing a snapshot of multicultural Britain.”
