Last year’s London Mela was certainly a day to remember!
An estimated 82,000 of you from all over London came along to join in this fantastic celebration inspired by South Asian culture and creativity. What felt like the hottest day of the summer served up some of the hottest free and family-friendly fun. We had music ranging from the Philharmonia Orchestra performing the London premiere of Holst’s ‘Indra’ to Bobby Friction with BBC Introducing and Nihal in the BBC Asian Network Mix Tent.
There were dancers, drummers, ice-creams and funfair rides, not to mention delicious food from all over the world. And who can forget the colourful, crazy carnival procession towards the end of the day! This eclectic 10th O2 London Mela was a true kaleidoscope of events – thank you to everyone who helped to make it such a special day and a very Happy Birthday Mela!
