PAINT the town red, as well as blue, yellow and green, as the festival of colour, Holi One, hits Southampton this weekend as part of a new 17-date tour.

Thousands of revellers, all dressed in white, will descend on Mayflower Park tomorrow and cover each other with brightly coloured powder, on the hour, every hour, while enjoying live dance music.

The event will see people entertained by some of the best local and international DJs.

Last year, Holi One Colour festivals were attended by 100,000 worldwide and took place across cities and countries that included London, South Africa and Berlin, but this weekend’s event is a first for Southampton.
