Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - by Goolis­tan Cooper goolis­tan.cooper@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

THE ex­otic sounds, tastes and fra­grances of In­dia brought a bit of ex­tra colour to Uxbridge last Thurs­day.

The Fu­sion Bol­ly­wood Fes­ti­val was held at Hilling­don Sport and Leisure Com­plex in Gat­ting Way and cul­mi­nated in the Fes­ti­val of Colour fi­nale which saw revellers throw coloured pow­der over each other to cel­e­brate the Hindi Holi fes­ti­val.

The day of events raised money for the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion and be­gan with a Bol­ly­wood dance class in the morn­ing, at­tended by around 40 peo­ple. It in­cluded four in­struc­tors and In­dian make-up and henna tat­too artists.

In the af­ter­noon was an In­dian buf­fet, be­fore a crowd of nearly 50 peo­ple took part in the Holi paint-throw­ing at the end. Or­gan­iser Lind­sey Perry said: “It was a great day. A lot of peo­ple didn’t know it was go­ing on but joined us. There was lots of colour ev­ery­where.”
