I attended the Mela for the first time this year and travelled across from Lincolnshire as a volunteer working at a stall to promote the union UNISON as part of the East Midlands Black Members Committee within the union. Myself & another volunteer spent the day speaking with the community about the benefits of UNISON particularly for the Black community & how UNISON give Black Members a platform to voice our issues. Despite the weather it was a great day & fantastic to be a small part of it.

These are some images from old slides which the Mela had developed for us. We think the images must be from one of the late 80's festivals.

The parade through the city was fun and magical at the 2011 Mela Festival.
