The mela has grown significantly over the years and we hope the event grows even further so that we can reflect and match the quality of mela events in other cities in the UK. The mela is constantly engaged in a number of initiatives to help meet its growth objectives including the constant application for funds for the event and membership of various national mela organisations. Furthermore, we are keen to engage as much of the local community into the event and invite suggestions for improvement on a regular basis. Annual feedback questionnaires are also a key part of the mela improvement process. If you would like to contibute to the next mela, please get in touch with your ideas.
