HOLI Festival Of Colours LeverkusenThe HOLI Festival takes place on the day of the fullmoon of the Phaluga month and is one of the most famous celebrations in the northern parts of India. At this Hindu-Festival people celebrate the victory of the good over the bad and the beginning of the spring. 

Fee: GBP3.50 admin fee to cover costs and expenses of running the group applies. Please note tickets are NOT included and it is just for those of you who got your own tickets during the meetup website issues. 

One summer. Four Cities. 25.000 colourful guests. [masked] Facebook Fans.

In 2012 the Holi Festival Of Colours mesmerised the people in Berlin, Dresden, Hannover and Munich. A never before seen collective feeling of euphoria and togetherness spread as a colourful cloud across Germany in the summer of 2012.

It all started on the 29th of June: a large number of people came together in Berlin for the first ever Holi Festival Of Colours in Europe and helped create an indescribable atmosphere on an unforgetable day.

The Facebook community began to grow, the media interest was enormous and the spirit of the Festival was carried through Germany.

Berlin could not be the last stop. So on August 26th and September 1st and 9th colourful people gathered in Dresden, Hannover and Munich. The Events

 with up to 11,000 guests were sold out in a short period of time – starting from 6 minutes up to a couple of hours.

„It is amazing …“

This is how the Holi Festival of Colours established itself in the festival scene and marks the origin of the colour festivals in Germany and Europe.

This was in large parts due to the professional and conscientious planning and organisation. Of course we attach great importance to the quality of the colours we use. They have to be tolerable to skin, eyes and lungs, and be harmless to the environment.

Please note that in order to keep the costs low, the trips are set up in such a way that they can be fully managed online. The descriptions are very detailed and try to answer all your questions and you will find additional information in pages section of the website. Please only email us if your query is not answered in the event's description andplease only call us in case of emergency. I'm afraid we will not be able to get back to you if your query is answered above as with over 60 events coming almost 4,000 members and current volume of emails, this would require hiring admin support and setting up a call centre, which as you can imagine would increase the costs of the events considerably. Please help us provide excellent trips at fantastic value for you and keep your emails to the minimum. Please make sure you read the event's description before contacting us. 

PLEASE DO NOT POST COMMENTS BELOW, unless you are selling your place. Comments generate emails that spam inboxes of everyone signed up for the trip.'

    Hi guys, As the station and the route to the festival will be very busy, we will be waiting for you at Westfield, since 12noon close to Franco Manca:
    http://uk.westfield.com/shop/stores/francomanca/stratfordcity?category_root=store&iretail_id=4855&retailer=45285
    (they have good reviews on trip advisor). Look out for a black balloon with logo. Please arrive by 12:30 the latest. We will not be able to find any late comers who arrive after this time and no refunds will be processed in that case. The festival gets really busy and we will simply not be able to do it, so if you are more than half an hour late (so any later than 12:30) you will have lost your ticket.

      If I understand the concept of the food court well, we should be able to buy what we want and sit where we want. So while the reservations can not be made and we will have to be flexible about how we sit, at least everyone will find type of cuisine that they are happy with. :) That way we can have some food before going in, and avoid the crowds that will be queueing in front of the entrance - last year there was a bit of a wait at the start of the festival. However if you want to get in there early, please and find us at the Franco Manca at 12noon and we will be happy to give you your ticket so that you can go ahead. I will be joining you for a bit, but will leave early - the main event host is Prabhu. His number is 07714409543. Please note the number will only be available till 12:30. Thank you,
      Kat

    So sorry! Can't make it anymore. Booked Book of Mormon tix for the same day (not even thinking) and they're non refundable -- and too pricey for me to take the loss :-(

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
