One of the biggest family festivals in the west London calendar, the London Mela , will go ahead this year - but in a different location.
Earlier this year in March, organisers Remarkable Productions cancelled the annual event.
The reason behind the decision to take a break this summer was to focus on setting up a new independent trust to manage the Mela, after local authority funding was cut, with the aim of making a bigger and better come back in 2017.
However, it seems the organisers have had a change of heart and will be hosting the 14th festival on September 3.
The free ZEE London Mela will take over Wembley Park and across two stages will bring the best in classical music, British urban artists, traditional dance, comedy and cabaret as well as street theatre and exhibitions.
There will also be the usual mouth watering Tastes of Asia food market for families to indulge in.
This year's event is supported by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, who said: “This wonderful family event showcases the fantastic diversity of Asian arts and culture in the capital, and invites Londoners from all backgrounds to come together and get involved.
"Over the last fourteen years the Mela really has gone from strength to strength, with fantastic street theatre, dancing and delicious Asian cuisine.
"It’s events like this, taking place in all corners of the city that remind us that London Is Open, for all of our communities and to the world.”
'An event to remember'
Remarkable Productions is working with ZEE TV, Sunrise Radio, Lycamobile and Wembley Park to keep the London Mela alive.
Julian Rudd, creative producer for London Mela of Remarkable Productions, said: “An extraordinary artistic programme featuring the very best of South Asian music, arts and family entertainment is awaiting audiences of all ages.
“The Tastes of Asia Food Market and the Bollywood Dance Flash Mob are just some of the many delights the ZEE London Mela will cook up for you this year.
“We are very grateful for the financial support of the Mayor of London and Wembley Park, without which this show wouldn’t be possible.”
Remarkable Productions said they continue to prepare for the launch of a new, independent London Mela Trust in 2017, whilst developing plans for a two-day Mega Mela in Gunnersbury Park in next year, supported by Ealing Council, to mark India’s and Pakistan’s 70 anniversary of Independence
James Saunders, Wembley Park's COO, said: “We are delighted to be hosting London ZEE Mela this year. Celebrating Wembley Park’s vibrant and diverse cultural heritage is an important part of our ethos.
“With such a vast range of entertainment, food, and activities, we can’t wait to build on the previous success of London Mela It's certainly going to be an event to remember.”
The free ZEE London Mela will be held at Wembley Park on Saturday September 3 2016 from midday to 7pm.
