It’s back! Leicester Belgrave Mela celebration this August!

An authentic array of South Asian arts and Indian cultural entertainment will take over Leicester city centre as the annual Leicester Belgrave Mela festival returns after a tumultuous 2 years break.

Thousands of people will enjoy a day of spectacular Indian inspired arts, music, culture, food, fashion and entertainment.

As every year, Sabras Radio will be present at the Mela so make sure you come down and meet your favourite presenters and artists!


Leicester Market will play host to the very popular Indian shopping bazaar, featuring an array of stalls selling clothes, jewellery, fashion, information and much more. The Mela food court will have delicious foods from across the subcontinent including authentic Indian tea, green coconuts, kulfi ice cream and amazing fresh sugar cane juices.

The main entertainment stage on Humberstone Gate this year will provide a platform for all our talented performers. Live entertainment from established and up and coming performers to showcase their immense talent. Our Sabras Radio roadshow will end the day at 5pm with an hour long slot filled with live entertainment, competitions, which will be hosted by our presenters.

The Mela has always been a family focused event, so lots to do for the whole family including billy bates children rides, Arts and crafts by Leicester Museum’s, a Bollywood Punch & Judy shows throughout the day and a life size elephant parading the City centre.


Festival Manager, Pravin Mistry, said, “I am sure the Mela will be a huge success again. The fact that thousands of people come every year, from far and wide, just shows what the Mela means to people here in the city and after a two year break the performers are so excited about entertaining the crowds. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful volunteers who make the event what it is and a shout out to our supporters Leicester City Council, Sabras Radio, Mirch Masala and Royal Indian’
