Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances the Festival of Colours 2018 has been cancelled. We hope that the festival can return in 2019. Don't forget the Mela will return on the 26th August, and who knows, we may have some colour surprises in the festival this year! 

Known across the globe as India's most energetic and vibrant holiday, the 'Festival of Colours' or 'Holi' (which translates to 'Colour' in Hindi) celebrates the arrival of Spring in a truly spectacular fusion of colour, culture and creativity.

Blues, greens, purples, reds, yellows, and pinks come together in a high spirited, fun-filled party atmosphere. Thousands of people from across the city and beyond come to our purpose built arena for a vivid, powder-throwing multi-colour frenzy. A great chance to have some fun, make new friends, and celebrate together as one.

“I think this sort of event is great for Belfast…a celebration of diversity which is open to all is essential in moving to a united community and making Belfast truly a shared space for all”
