Fire, light and all things bright
On Saturday 28 October, London Mela presents the third and final chapter of their 15th edition with the Colors Festival of Fire and Light at Wembley Park.
What to expect on the night
Firstly, get there early and check out what Wembley Park has to offer. Pop down to LDO and browse their 50 outlet stores where you can save up to 70% off RRP on brands including Converse, Jack Wills, Nike, M&S, Kurt Geiger, Superdry, Gap, Sketchers, VANS, Levi’s, H&M and Guess.
After bagging a few bargains, head over to the Colors tent for 4pm where there’s the chance to meet the performer Arjun and get a signed autograph before his performance at 6 pm.
At the heart of the event is the inaugural Carnival of Lights featuring local carnival heroes Mahogany who along with members of the community will be dressed in fire-inspired costumes and performing a procession with lanterns made by children and their families. There will also be a series of performances including the Bolly Brollys which are 30 Bollywood dancers lit by specially commissioned glowing umbrellas created by Cirque Bijou.
Tuck into some tasty treats from the Taste of Asia food market while watching the show. Come hungry so you can discover new dishes or dine out on some of your classic favourites.
The finale of the night will involve a 150ft crane and eight French clowns. This jaw-dropping aerial percussion display from Transe Express is set to the melodic tone of East London’s finest the Dhol Academy against the backdrop of the iconic Wembley Stadium arch.
