Artists / Performers needed for Festival of Colour - Poole
Artists Brief : Holi - Festival of Colour Celebrations
The Poole Indian Cultural Society requires artists / performers for their
celebratory lunch event for Holi - the Festival of Colour.
Poole Indian Cultural Society
Poole, Dorset, has a growing number of Indian families residing in the
area. PICS was set up in 2005 with the aim of facilitating interaction
between members of the Indian community and with the wider local
community. We have so far organised dinner - dances for Diwali and Holi
which have been attended by up to 200 people.
Holi : Holi is a fun-filled festival of the Hindu calendar. A bonfire
is lit in honour of the Princess Holika -others say for Prahlad-and then
adults and children alike celebrate by splashing each other with colour.
The Event :
This will be a family event from 11am-3pm on Sunday 5/5/07. Lunch will
be served to ticket holders, before which children and (willing) adults
will be invited to 'play' Holi. We would like some wandering
entertainment to occupy guests before and after lunch and will organise
a marquee to protect performers and guests in the event of rain. The
venue is the Cobham Leisure Centre, Poole.
Artists required include:
* Folk performers / musicians
* Henna Artists
* Circus performers
Inclusive Artists fee: a fee of £300 (three hundred pounds) per
performance is available.
Additional funds to help cover transport costs are negotiable.
