DRUMS heralded a festival of light and an explosion of colour at one of the region’s university early on Tuesday 12 November
The event at Durham University’s Queen’s Campus in Stockton was inspired by the Hindu festival of Diwali.
Highlights included performances by Hindu dancers and drummers as well as a dragon boat appearance, sailed by the UK Dragon Boat World Champions on the Tees.
The free event was organised by Stockton Borough Council in association with Middlesbrough’s Hindu Cultural Society.
A council spokeswoman said: “The music, lights and fireworks tell the story of Diwali and celebrate Indian culture.”
