With roots in the Indian subcontinent, the word Mela means ‘ A Fair’. In rural tradition, Mela’s were and still are of great importance in connecting communities. In its modern usage, it is not only a South Asian but also an intercultural festival incorporating art, culture, music, dance, traditional food and heritage.
Preston City Mela is a family oriented event, which provides an opportunity to share rich cultural heritage with all population groups. This unique, colourful and free event aims to promote meaningful integration and interaction between the diverse groups within Preston and Lancashire.
