LEICESTER BELGRAVE MELA was brought by Lebara Mobile which took place in the Leicester City Centre on Sunday 18th July.  The weather was quite good, although there was slight rain here and there but mostly the weather was quite promising so it did not ruin the entertainment of the mela.  At the start of the mela, there was not many people and the atmosphere was slightly dull yet more people gathered as the time went on which livened the environment quite nicely.

If you love your food then you will be upset to know that you missed out the opportunity of tasting delicious freshly cooked food.  There were many stalls set around the Mela serving great food, such as Mirch Malsala.

Also, there was music, live performances by stars such as Preeya Kalidas, H Dhami, Mumzy Stranger as well as Rishi Rich himself being there, there were displays of art and crafts, cultural activities and rides for children, to keep you on your feet and fully entertained!
