Join us for the 27th anniversary of the Middlesbrough Mela. Mela is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘gathering’ or ‘to meet’ or a ‘fair’. This year Middlesbrough Mela will take place July 15-16.
Last year’s Mela attracted an audience of around 50,000 over the free two-day festival – it is the largest and longest established event of its kind in the North East.
Mela promises a fabulous mix of world class music, a wide range of entertainment, a family fairground and a popular bazaar, packed full of stalls and participatory workshops and opportunities.
Held every year since 1990, the Middlesbrough College-sponsored Mela sees the town celebrate its culture and diversity through a wide range of music, entertainment, a funfair and a popular bazaar packed full of stalls.
Remember it's Stewart Park Farmers' Market tomorrow from 9am! Make sure you get there nice and early to enjoy all of the tasty, local food! Yummo!
