The London Mela in Gunnersbury Park is a wonderful celebration of Asian music and culture which always draws a big crowd - 80,000 visitors attended last year - with its line-up of British Asian music, Bollywood figures and traditional and classical performances. Entertainment is spread over nine zones, all showcasing different types of music with urban, classical and experimental music, DJs, circus and comedy as well as dance, arts and a Magic Mela family area. There will also be a fun fair and hundreds of stalls selling food and crafts, all of which makes the London Mela a magnet for a multitude of Londoners out for a good time.
From formal gardens and green open spaces to lakes and historic buildings, Gunnersbury Park is full of idyllic spots to enjoy nature. Visitors can wander through the tree-lined paths, pop into the museum or get active. As well as buildings and gardens that date from the time when it was a grand estate owned by Princess Amelia and the Rothschilds, there are up-to-date facilities including play areas, rugby and football pitches, tennis courts, a bowling green and a pitch 'n' putt golf course.
