Due to the current global COVID19 pandemic it will not come too much of a surprise if Sussex Indian Punjabi Society inform our community early that it will not be proceeding with its normal Diwali Dinner & Dance event in November. We understand your disappointment and know how important it is for everyone to meet socially for their health and well being at this special cultural and festive time of the Indian calendar.

Instead, as an alternative we are in process of planning a FREE virtual Facebook interactive video concert with singers and artists for members and non-members to enjoy on Saturday 21st November between 5:00pm to 7:00pm and also cooking tutorial classes during November. We will be doing this with support from BHCC council (pending outcome of a funding application) whilst working together with ‘Indian Colours’ and other interested local organisations of the Brighton Indian Community who are also facing similar challenges. So please make a draft note of this in your diaries and watch out for more updates to follow here and on our Facebook page, Facebook group & website.

In meantime note upcoming Cultural Festivals in October for your diary:

9th October – Birth of Guru Ram Das Ji

17th October – Navatri

20th October – Gur Gadi Diwas

25th October – Dusshera
