The best places to celebrate Holi this weekend

It’s a spring thing. Decidedly so. Whatsapp chats centre around when the first barbecue of the year would be appropriate and Easter is still six weeks away.

Embrace the turn of the season without having to resort to chocolate, and instead get ready get messy with powdered gulal paint, to celebrate the Hindu festival of Holi at the start of spring.

Cinnamon Kitchen have already got their party underway in Devonshire Square with a 12 day pop up to cover strangers and friends in paint. They have daytime and evening sessions available to book, alongside a five course menu for anyone that's worked up an appetite after a load of fluorescent fun.

Also Eastbound, Dishoom will no doubt be getting their white-clothes-they-dont-mind-ruining ready for their family-friendly daytime party on Sunday 12th March, with street food also available from Rola Wala, Curry on Food and Horn OK Please. The daytime will then morph into evening festivities with music from Shammi Pithia and world class tabla player Vikaash Sankadecha.
