Deepavali is the festival of lights. Deepavali is celebrated all across the globe where ever people from Indian sub-continent are there. In the Tamil calendar Deepavali falls on the month of Aipasi. Even though it is a Hindu festival, people from all religion join to celebrate the festivities of Deepavali. Traditionally we at Northern Tamil Association have always celebrated Deepavali with great pomp and flair. We take great pride in organising the Deepavali celebration for our community. We use this opportunity to give a great platform for our children and adults to exhibit their talents. NTA Deepavali generates a large interest amongst our Tamil community that we get participants from nine different regions in the UK and they take part in our cultural extravaganza and they compete for several prizes and the spectacular NTA championship trophy.
