After a triumphant event last year, organisers of the Newtown Diwali Festival are proud to announce that preparations are underway for the Newtown Diwali Festival 2007 which will take place on Saturday, 27th of October 2007, in the Newtown Cultural Precinct. This year’s festival is sponsored by Medal Paints, a Johannesburg-based paint manufacturing concern.
After logging a record attendance of over 40 000 festival-goers last year, coordinators of the Newtown Diwali Festival 2007 are now calling on all cultural and community organisations to submit expressions of interest to participate in their cultural programme which will take centre stage at the festival. Last year’s cultural programme showcased a high caliber of local talent, resulting in a dazzling programme of music, song and dance.
Interested organisations should contact Festival Programme Coordinator, Ravi Naidoo on the links alongside.
