Chelmsford Indian Association Diwali Celebrations 2017

The Chelmsford Indian Association hosted the annual Diwali celebrations on the 4th of November at the Hamptons Sports and Leisure Club (old Marconi Club) between 5 pm and 11 pm and it was a huge hit among the British Indian Community living in and around Chelmsford.

This being the 13th year since the Chelmsford Indian Association was formed to promote cultural talent among the British Indian Community, the interest in the event was apparent right from the time the ticket sale was announced.

The tickets for the event were sold out way before the event and there was lots of enquiries till the very end from families asking for tickets.

The hall was packed to capacity and the evening began with some really entertaining on-stage performances which got the crowd going. There were songs, dances, a fashion show and many more performances which were a treat to watch and hear to the gathering as most performers have been practising for this event for a good few months.

Most of the gathering wore traditional, ethnic and colourful clothes on the day. This was one place where the entire British Indian community from in and around Chelmsford gathered and hence it gave those who were there a very good opportunity to socialise, network and catch up with other families.

There was also a traditional Indian three course meal served on the day which the gathering enjoyed. After dinner there was a DJ session which saw most of those who had gathered shaking their legs to some very popular Indian songs which included songs from Bollywood, Tollywood, Kollywood and many more.

The comments received from our members since the event has been extremely positive and we hope to work on making our next event even better and more entertaining for our members.

The next event of the Chelmsford Indian Association is the Christmas and New Year Celebrations on the 6th of January 2018 at the Hamptons Sports and Leisure centre between 5 pm and 11 pm.

Please contact for tickets for the event.
