In the name of God, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

The annual London Mela is one of the biggest celebrations of Asian culture and creativity in Europe. This major free festival is supported by the Mayor of London and produced by Ealing Council.

The programme for the 2009 London Mela, on Sunday 16 August, will include live music, dance and performance from the UK and overseas.

What is a Mela?

Mela is a Sanskrit word meaning 'to meet', used to describe all sorts of community celebrations and festivals in the Asian subcontinent.

A long-standing tradition in South Asia, the Mela strengthens communities by bringing people together in a festival atmosphere where everyone can enjoy food, music and dance.

The London Mela has grown to be regarded, nationally and internationally, as the most significant event of its kind. It's a truly family-friendly event, and one for all of London to enjoy.

See you there insha'Allah - God willing!

Peace & respect
