Swindon’s largest and biggest festival “The Swindon Mela” returns to the Town Gardens at the peak of summer on Saturday 25th July. Celebrating South Asian arts and culture the event this year promises a day of entertainment, a variety of stalls, mouth watering cuisine, and vibrant colour. The Swindon Mela is a must attend event in the dairy of the residents of Swindon and surrounding area. The venue enhances the atmosphere and gives a feel of intimacy. Visitor feedback has always been positive and we are proud to mention that the event is organised to such high standards and quality that it is considered to be the safest event to attend for not only families but people of all ages, race and gender. In its 12 years of existence the event has a history of zero violence or incidents. The Mela Project Team has always worked towards delivering an event with high standards. They have particularly emphasised Health and Safety, making it their priority to make sure visitors are safe during their visit to the event. They work very closely with Swindon Borough Council’s Environmental Health team; attend meetings with the Event Safety Advisory Group and work with 3 major emergency services. The Swindon Mela every year indirectly contributes highly towards the local economy, particularly small and medium business enterprises (SME), through visitors spending their money at shops, bars, and restaurants and using taxis as means of travel. The Project Team also award large contracts to local companies for goods and service at the Mela. Equally the Swindon Mela continues to be committed on promoting community cohesion and working with local community organisations and groups: sharing cultural knowledge and skills.
