Yesterday Londoners were invited to get involved with spectacular Diwali celebrations in the heart of London at Diwali in the Square, which brought Diwali to Trafalgar Square, London, in an extravagant cultural event.

The Festival of Lights
Diwali in the Square transformed Trafalgar Square with vibrant Diwali celebrations.

Music and dance
As well as lights and decorations, a full programme of performances feature at Diwali in the Square including a mixture of traditional and contemporary music and dance. This year's highlights include the chance to take part in a traditional circular dance known at the garba accompanied by live music from Asian band Shama and Friends, and performances of Bollywood hits from the Trafalgar Square stage. There's also the chance to hear the Rhythm n Bass Dhol Players, and see live performances from the Beeja Dance Company.

Special activites at Diwali in the Square
There were a number of special activities for both kids and families to take part in this year, with classical, urban and street dance showcases.

Meanwhile, the National Gallery are hosting Diwali themed family tours and shadow puppet performances, as well as a Festival of Light exhibition.
