Pick up your Easirent hire car from our London Luton Airport depot and head to the London Mela Festival 2015. The festival, which is Europe’s largest outdoor South Asian festival will be held in Gunnersbuy Park on 6 September 2015 and is free for all ages to enjoy.
The organisers of the event, which includes the Mayor of London, have organised a huge programme of live entertainment celebrating traditional South Asian culture and heritage. The festival site will be dotted with numerous stages and tents, which are spread across nine zones that showcase differing music and dance styles ranging from contemporary to classical.
Throughout the day, visitors can sample some of the finest South Asian cuisine from local vendors who will be showcasing their menus from market stalls, which can be found scattered across the festival site. Keep the kids entertained on the giant funfair, or take them along to one of the many workshops and classes.
In attendance at this year’s festival will be the Bollywood sensation ZEE with his band Funkuation, as well as many other great acts across the nine festival zones.
Make sure you stick around for the finale of this fantastic event which will be a spectacular, theatrical firework display.
This year’s Mela Festival will have three charity beneficiaries, including Oxfam, The Gurkha Welfare Trust and YUMI Nepal.
