Pic of the Week: Holi

20120310-143734.jpg

Happy Holi! The Festival of Colours going on at Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham. This Hindu festival marks the coming of spring and, as you can see, involves a lot of throwing of coloured powder. A great afternoon with a really good party atmosphere organised by El Brute, Orleans House Gallery and others.

    Went again this year – really good fun, super party atmosphere, a really relaxed, happy and inclusive feel to the event. Well done organisers! Only wish there were more colour bags thrown out, or perhaps a place where we could buy some for the little ones who didn’t get one.
