Croydon Mela


On Sunday 15th July 2018, the London Mela will present the second edition of the Croydon International Mela, celebrating the culture of Croydon’s Asian communities and showcasing a combination of musical legends, international artists, local talent, extraordinary dance and spectacular street theatre.  Completely free of charge, this cornucopia of delights will take place in the beautiful environs of Wandle Park where there will truly be something for everyone.




Croydon International Mela is a timely symbol of our wonderfully diverse city that stands strong and united in the current divisive times. Celebrating a rainbow of cultures and traditions at a time when this is under threat, it is an important reminder that above all, love always wins.



Croydon International Mela is one big melting pot of a party celebrating through music, dance, food and culture, the traditions of the huge number of diverse communities who live as one in this dynamic city.
