Peterborough lit up by Diwali celebrations

The colourful festival of lights lit up a gloomy Peterborough weekend as the city celebrated Diwali.

A taste of Bollywood was brought to Cathedral Square on Saturday with the annual celebrations, with traditional Indian dancing, music and food on offer. Members of all faiths in the city were present for the Hindu festival, with lanterns lit by dignitaries. The entertainment ranged from the traditional Bollywood style dancing to a more contemporary dance from Raj Kumar, which incorporated skeletons.
