Harrow will kick off this year’s Diwali celebrations with a repeat of last year’s light show in the Town Centre, desinged to lift retail footfall.
Lights will be switched on in the lamp columns along Station Road and College Road and an eye-catching light garden of snowdrops will arrive around Katie’s Statue in the Town Centre.
The display will remain until January 3rd for the period which includes Al-hijra, Hanukah, Christmas and the New Year.
The light garden is one of a series of activities and events to promote the Town Centre and attract shoppers from Harrow and beyond during the festive period and into the New Year funded by money won by Harrow Council from the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund.
Cllr Keith Ferry, portfolio holder for planning and economic development on Harrow Council, said: “We are promoting what these centres have to offer and making them stand out from the crowd to attract shoppers and help the traders flourish.
“The Council is working on a long-term vision to regenerate Harrow Town Centre and create a place where people want to live, work and be entertained. ”
