Nowruz is the day of the vernal equinox, and marks the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. It marks the first day of the first month (Farvardin) in the Iranian calendar. It usually occurs on March 21 or the previous or following day, depending on where it is observed. The moment the sun crosses the celestial equator and equalizes night and day is calculated exactly every year, and families gather together to observe the rituals.

Although having Iranian and religious Zoroastrian origins, Nowruz has been celebrated by people from diverse ethno-linguistic communities. It has been celebrated for over 3,000 years in Western Asia, Central Asia, the Caucasus, the Black Sea Basin, and the Balkans. It is a secular holiday for most celebrants that is enjoyed by people of several different faiths, but remains a holy day for Zoroastrians.

Achaemenid Ltd. hosts events in London to mark this joyous occasion by providing diverse family-oriented cultural programming, concerts, traditional music, cuisine, market and more.

 

 

Mill Hill Broadway is a quality shopping destination in North West London with many independent shops and restaurants plus the best of the chains.  Several times a year the street is transformed by a series of Continental Style Markets with a myriad of stalls selling everything from hot street food to crafts and designer items. Some markets have a live music stage and street entertainers. At Christmas there are even Reindeer !

This street will be transformed to a festival venue on Sat. 17 Mar. 2018 to celebrate Nowruz which is important for many north London residents with Persian and central Asian origins. The event is also aimed to be a cultural showcase to other nationalities.

The event is operated by Mill Hill Neighbourhood Forum with conjunction with Vibe Market and support of Barnet Council.

A layout of the venue is provide below.
