Festivals of Our Lives

Festivals of Our Lives is a Library Services at Home project based on interviews with seven of our library users. The project began in October 2006 and was completed in October 2007. It takes a personal look at Diwali, Christianity, Eid Ul-Fitr and Vaisakhi.

The participants originally from India, Kenya, Jamaica, Pakistan and Nairobi, all share their recollections of how they celebrated festivals in their own countries. They also talk about how they now celebrate their festivals since living in England.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all participants for taking the time to share their treasured memories with us.

Thank you.
