Diving Into A New Culture

Taking place over 2 days at Platt Fields Park, this free event raises awareness of and celebrates South Asian culture through traditional music and dancing, authentic cooking, and arts and crafts.

Now in its 13th year, the mela brings together individuals from all cultures and backgrounds, and exclusively features:

  • Free henna painting
  • Face painting
  • Dance workshops
  • A fashion show, featuring the latest styles in Asian clothing
  • A funfair
  • Sports, including kabbadi – a classic Indian sport, in which players have to tag/capture their opponents whilst holding their breath and running, and repeating the word 'kabaddi' at the same time!

"The mela is a great opportunity for us to experience the vibrancy of South Asian culture and build links with the community. Manchester is a multi-cultural city, and it's really beneficial for individuals from different backgrounds to come together and learn more about one another."

"If you're attending the event and would like information about immigration, or have questions about immigrating following Brexit, our team will be happy to offer you advice and walk you through the right type of legal service for you."

"Even if you're just passing through the event, feel free to come along and say hello to us at our stall!"
