Throw on your white protective suit and head to the terrace in Devonshire Square for an interlude of colourful chaos during 26 February to 10 March.

There’s no boring work day that can’t be fixed with 30 minutes of paint pelting friends, family and colleagues. Step into the madness of House of Holi, and after the exertion, replenish with Holi inspired cocktails, light bites or a five course feast cooked by Vivek Singh.

Cinnamon Kitchen Just Opened a Two-Week Holi Party


Holi officially falls on 1 March, signifying spring’s arrival and winter’s close. The iconic paint fighting of the holiday allows those celebrating to forgive and forget– to celebrate love and friendship.

Make an evening of it! For £35 per person, you can enjoy a paint fight followed by a five course feast. Expect dishes such as:

Golguppa (v) (g) tangy potato in semolina shell, yoghurt and tamarind
Chicken Papdi Chaat (g) tandoori chicken chaat on wheat crisp with coriander chutney
Lamb Shammi Kebab tender ground lamb kebab with smoked paprika raita
Carrot & Ginger Meetha (g) carrot & ginger toffee pudding, caramel sauce
Hot Gulab Jamun (g) caramelised milk dumpling
