Walsall Mela 30th August 2015

Slide2Three years after it last took place, the Walsall Mela is back!

The last time it took place was in 2012 where over 8000 people attended on the day.

This year it will be taking place on the 30th August 2015 at Palfrey Park Walsall.

Due to the dedication and hard work of the Caldmore Village Festival Group, the people of Walsall will have their traditional Mela back this year.

Co-ordinator Akhlaq Hussain who is very passionate about the Mela said

I am extremely excited and really looking forward to the event, I would like to invite all of you to join us, bring your families and enjoy the festivities on the day.

I would especially like to thank Walsall Council and the Community Cohesion Team for their support and for working in partnership with us, enabling us to help deliver the event.

The Mela, which means coming together (festival),  will have a range of activities across the park which will include:

  • live music in the bandstand
  • children’s entertainment and workshops
  • a partners and community marquee
  • sports tasters and tournaments for young people to take part in

Topping up the event will be traditional Asian Sports including Volley Ball, Stone Lifting and Kabbadi.

Children will also have a fantastic time with arts and craft workshops, face painting, fairground rides and inflatables.

The event will be a really multicultural splash for all to attend, enjoy and take part in celebrating the diversity we have in our community.
