Diwali Writing Workshop (Online via Zoom)
Would you like a ride on the time travelling machine and go back to the time when Diwali was first celebrated? Would you like to be a member of the public, gathering on the streets of Ayodhya, welcoming the Crown Prince, his wife, Sita and brother, Lakshman back to their kingdom? Could you be the reporter who gets an exclusive interview opportunity with them?
Come along to this exciting writing and storytelling workshop where we will go back in time and experience that first Diwali when it all began. Families are welcome to join in and write together.
