Hundreds of people are expected to turn out for a festival honouring the Hindu goddess of knowledge and wisdom.
A group of people from the town’s Bangladeshi community, supported by local Indian restaurants, will be marking the Saraswati Puja, a festival devoted to the goddess Saraswati, at The Platform in Faringdon Road.
The festival takes place today, with various prayers at The Platform throughout the day.
The main celebration will be on Sunday.
The doors will open at 6pm, with a sumptuous dinner, followed by dancing and singing from local and national groups, plus a raffle draw.
