Parvy Rakar, founder & director Snob Events said ‘Our guests enjoyed an authentic Punjabi Lohri – the food, décor, favours and ambience we worked so hard to create took our guests back to Punjab where Lohri is celebrated with huge fan fare. We wanted to celebrate our daughters and show that there is equality for both sexes.’
