The event was free for all to enjoy and started on the Soho Road precinct at 2pm, which lead the day towards the official switching on of the Diwali lights at 7pm by the children from the local school and the Chief Exectuive Of Birmingham City Council, Mark Rogers, lighting up both Soho Road and Holyhead Road. 

Speaking prior to the event, BID manager Craig Bucky said: “We are very excited about running our first community event. It’s been a lot of hard work and determination and you’ll get to see a great celebration that the community can be proud of”. 

Soho Road BID hopes for this to be annual celebration attracting more stars and more people to come with their families and friends to join in the festivities and enjoy themselves.
