Tunbridge Wells Mela
Sun 18th July 2010

12.00 - 7.00pm

Now in its fifth year, the Tunbridge Wells Mela just keeps getting better! One of the biggest celebrations of cultural diversity, last year’s Tunbridge Wells Mela attracted 6,000 visitors making it one of the biggest events of its kind in Kent.

The event is organised by Tunbridge Wells Borough Council in partnership with Cohesion Plus, Kent Equality Cohesion Council, Kent Police, Tunbridge Wells Arts Partnership and grant funded by the Arts Council of England. This free outdoor festival aims to bring together the communities of Tunbridge Wells, through music, entertainment, food and dance from all over the world including the UK, Africa, Bangladesh and South America.

The performances on stage will include:

  • Phase 5 Steel Band: African/Caribbean drumming
  • Cascade Dance: British Contemporary dance
  • Shekoyokh Klezmer Ensemble: Ashkenazi Jewish, Eastern European, Balkan and Turkish Folk Music
  • Local schools featuring Cultural Beats, Lucky Moyo and Bloco Fogo
  • LK Philipino Dance Group: Philipino
  • Camden Road Choir: British
  • Bangladeshi Pop Group: Bangladeshi
  • Cristofe Sors: European Folk
  • Cohesion Plus: Kent Music School Fusion Performance/ British/ World Music Fusion
  • Carmen Souza Quartet: South American
  • ADH Bhangra Act: India/Pakistani
  • ABBA Magic: Pop

In addition, Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery will be providing free family activities like the popular ‘Digging Deep’ to the Mela this year. To celebrate National Archaeology Week, visitors can also follow the worldwide history trail, become a desert archaeologist in a mini dig and make an ancient Egyptian treasure.

The festival will also be linked to the Big Lunch – an Eden project initiative to bring neighbours together over lunch and we hope to create the biggest street party in the area!

The Tunbridge Wells Mela is supported by Kent and Sussex Courier, Sainsburys and BBC Radio Kent.
