Diwali Celebrations – Bhooli Bisri Yaadein

The annual West area Diwali event was celebrated on Saturday 22nd October 2016. Three weeks prior all 150 tickets were sold making this event a total sell out! Preparations started on Saturday morning with the volunteers making delicious dishes and transforming Oshwal Shakti Centre. Who would have thought the venue could look this good!

Guests started arriving from 6.30pm, and were welcomed with mithai and a glass of ‘pure heaven’. After a few announcements and mouth-watering starters, the band ‘Roopal Shah and Friends’ took to the stage and sang some wonderful songs from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s that took everyone down memory lane!

With a mixture of fantastic songs from different genres, there was something for everyone! All the guests were entertained throughout the evening, and some even got on the dance floor early! After a couple of hours of great music, it was time for the finger licking main course which everyone enjoyed. After dinner it was time to get the dance floor rocking! The lights were dimmed and the place was jazzed up even more with disco lights! The band stepped up the music and sang popular olden golden dancing songs, while everyone filled up the dance floor from young to old and danced the night away!

Here are some of the wonderful comments that were shared by members of the West Area.
