This selection centres on the religious and social events celebrated by the diaspora throughout the year. It highlights the coming together of the regional communities in their big festivals such as Diwali, Eid, Good Friday and Guru Nanak’s birthday (Nagar Kirtan) to the all encompassing intercultural Mela. Scotland’s thriving migrant culture is evident and encouraged, as the Diwali procession down the Royal Mile draws similarities to the Ancient Gaelic Fire Festival also celebrated in Edinburgh.
