Hindus will be showered with colour at an annual celebration to mark the start of spring.

Worshippers will pelt each other with powdered dye at Holi Dhamaka, also known as the festival of colour, at Harrow Civic Centre, in Station Road.

Celebrations also feature a bonfire, on which an effigy of the demon Holika is burned.

The event, which is the most important festival in the Hindu calendar, takes place on a full moon and is being organised by the International Siddhashram Shakti Centre.

It will be held on Sunday, March 16 at 7pm.
