Following Lib Dem and Tory cuts to Brent Council, there will not be a Diwali parade along Ealing Road like there was last year. However, there will be a free fireworks display at Barham Park to celebrate fireworks night and Diwali on Saturday 5th November from 6pm to 10pm. The Funfair at the park will start at 6pm with fireworks at 8.30 pm with lasers. The event is scheduled to close at 10pm.
Visitors are advised not to drive to the event as it is on a Wembley Stadium Event day and therefore parking is restricted in the area and if you park without a permit, your car may be towed.
You can use the following bus routes to get to the event: 18,92, 182, 204, 245. The actual address for the Park is, Barham Park, Sudbury HA0 2HB.
If the event cannot go ahead on 5th November because of bad weather, it will be postponed to Sunday 6 November 2011.
