Don't miss our Holi 2022 art exhibition!
6th April to 2nd May
at The Core, Courtyard Gallery, B91 3RG

Holi is a festival that celebrates spring, love, and new life through vibrant colour.

Although the festival originated in India, it’s been adopted around the world. It’s also sometimes called the “festival of love” as on this day people unite, forgetting all bad feeling towards each other. The festival is perhaps most recognised by the fun activity of throwing powder paint on each other.

Art at the Heart invites you to our FREE art exhibition full of new interpretations of Holi created by our amazing community artists. Courtyard Gallery opening hours:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 9.00am to 5.00pm

About Holi

Krishna celebrating Holi with Radha and Gopis. 19th century. Unknown author.

Holi is considered one of the most revered and celebrated festivals of India and it is celebrated in almost every part of the country. The festival lasts for a day and a night, which starts in the evening of Purnima or the Full Moon Day in the month of Falgun.

It is celebrated with the name Holika Dahan or Choti Holi on first evening of the festival and the following day is called Holi. In different parts of the country it is known with different names. To celebrate, people smear each other with paint and throw coloured water. This comes from the story of Krishna mischievously throwing coloured water at his milkmaids as a small boy.
