Diwali celebrations will light up Northampton town centre again in 2021.

Covid-19 forced the annual festival to 'go virtual' 12 months ago. But this year's spectacular procession will go ahead on October 30, marking the start of a five day festival of lights celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world celebrating the triumph of light over darkness.

Here's a reminder of 2019 when the spectacular procession last wound its way through the streets with its array of dancers, drummers and pedal-powered puppets.
