Festival of Fire and Light

4:00pm – 7:00pm
Free

Wembley Park Fireworks Night returns with a free festival for all the family. The event will celebrate Brent’s cultural diversity in an explosion of music, colours, fire and light to combine the best of Bonfire Night and Diwali. It will be free to members of the public, making it a unique experience for communities in Brent and London-wide.

From 4pm there will be a Rangoli Art Exhibition, performances from dance troupes and Bollywood Brass Bands and nine impressive installations from Doctor Kronovator’s Fire Laboratory – an interactive exploration of fire (which is completely safe of course). Food stalls from the areas best street traders will be offering the best of British and Asian culture. There will be a fire and light parade starting at 6pm headed by 20 Scottish fire torch bearers and featuring community-made lanters, Dhol drummers, carnival dancers, neon dancers and a huge mechanical elephant. The parade will culminate in a light show and fireworks display set to a soundtrack of Indian music.
