Cardiff Multicultural Mela >> About >> Organisation

Cardiff's first and only large scale outdoor mela initially was launched, organised and managed by a voluntary committee in 2006. In 2010, we incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee (without share capital) and remained a not-for-profit organisation. As of 2019, we are a Private Limited Company limited by shares. A board of directors along with a committee of community members make up the organisational team. For on the day event logistics, a local event management company is contracted to meet the needs of this large scale outdoor event. The event itself has now been running successfully and has grown steadily into Wales' largest single day multicultural event attracting 30,000+ visitors in 2010. Also, this free event was part funded by Cardiff City Council and the Arts Council in Wales in the past.
