Bringing the Hindu festival of Diwali into a new age, you’ll find yourself marvelling at the epic Electro-Light Circus, returning more intense than before! The incredible show featuring mind-boggling light tricks, acrobatics and circus skills is a must-see this autumn!
Voted the best event in the UK by Day Out With The Kids, this autumn, you can step into the vibrant world of Diwali at Robin Hill's award-winning electric woods, open from 6pm - 10pm on the following dates:
27th & 28th September
4th & 5th October
11th & 12th October
18th - 27th October
1st & 2nd November
As dusk settles across the park, immerse yourself in the nocturnal awakening of Robin Hill's ancient woodland at the Festival of Light, inspired by Diwali. Discover the lush colours, flavours and sounds of the Asian sub-continent, as you venture on a spirited journey of wonder through Indian-inspired experiences.
Uncover the fun and thrills of the family-favourite Holi powder arena and the new Neon Jungle; right through to the calm and serene celestial feel of the Woodland Ponds water projections and Taj Mahal Garden down on The Parting.
The park's newest adventure, Jungle Heights will be brought to life with a totally new vibe. LED lighting, smoke machines and an exciting sound track add a new element to the attraction, so you can immerse yourself in energetic, jungle-inspired fun - you'll be truly lost in the treetops.
Amidst all the exciting activity, take time to enjoy the authentic Indian menu of curries and kebabs, Asian sweet treats and traditional teas, providing a true taste of India.
The kids can get involved with Rangoli Art and Lantern Decorating workshops, indulge in some traditional henna art and marvel at the ambient street entertainment.
