Aylesbury is a truly multi-cultural town and it is a delight when music, dance and costumes from around the globe can come together in our community events.
In addition to running Holy Cow Home, a boutique interiors shop in Aylesbury, I am greatly involved in the organisation of town centre events. One of the biggest annual events is WhizzFizzFest. Celebrating Aylesbury’s links with leading Children’s author Roald Dahl, this festival attracts authors, celebrities and a wide range of local community groups and schools.
WhizzFizzFest is a creative delight, with thousands taking part in a themed parade. Music, dance art and literature combine to provide a fun-filled experience for everyone who is involved.
Holy Cow Fashion Show
Last year, I was the compere for the Holy Cow Fashion Show. Our fantastic local models showcased a range of Indian clothing. On hot and sunny days, as we experienced in 2018, the cool cotton and silk fabrics are cool and comfortable to wear. From muted tones to rich, vibrant colours, we showcased tops, trousers, skirt, shirts and scarfs to suit all tastes.
I was also involved in organising the Bollywood dancing session, which is a highlight for me. What better way to showcase our Indian heritage than with music, energetic dance and richly hand-embroidered Indian clothing!
Did you know – why do indian dancers dance bare feet?
Dance is not just a form of art, it is a homage to Lord Shiva, aka Natraj meaning lord of dance, its a sign of respect to the art.
Look forward to seeing you on the 22nd June, it will be a great family day out with so much to do in town, make sure you allow plenty of time to take part in all the activities and visit our little shop, see you there
