Where To Celebrate Holi In London 2024

The Hindu festival that signifies colours, love and the season of spring, Holi is often known for its gulal (coloured powder paint) throwing parties. Taking place on Monday the 25th March this year, it's becoming more and more popular with Londoners, thanks to supper clubs, classes and Bollywood performers all commemorating the special time. From Walthamstow to Marylebone, here’s our pick of the best events for the Holi Festival of Colours 2024 in London.


London ki Holi Festival

For a daytime event featuring live performances from dhol players, belly dancers, acclaimed DJs and entertainment for all the family, head to London ki Holi Festival at The Willows in Walthamstow on Saturday 23rd March. Adding to the lineup are street food counters (including dosas, biriyani, Indo-Chinese fare, and Indian sweets), as well as complimentary henna, hair and makeup studio sessions to get you ready for the celebrations.
