Mela-01

Leicester Market played host to the Leicester Belgrave Mela’s Indian Bazaar on Bank Holiday Monday, which attracted huge crowds of curious shoppers.

The 2015 Leicester Mela’s Bazaar was based in the Market between 11:00am and 6:00pm.

Despite bad weather in the morning large crowds were attracted to the event – then in the afternoon as the rain subsided the Bazaar, and the Mela as a whole, became extremely busy.

Those who visited the Bazaar were spoilt for choice thanks to an array of stalls selling a variety of Indian products and a plethora of mouth-watering authentic cuisine.

In addition to the Bazaar, members of the public were able to enjoy a range of entertainment around Leicester’s city centre throughout the day from: Zack Knight, Jay Kadn, Rana Sahota, GV featuring J Dhillon, Harmi feat Charanjit Singh and Bollytwin dancers.

The Leicester Belgrave Mela is a free annual event which has been running since 1982, when it was originally called the Belgrave Carnival.
