Nottingham Arts Mela: Arboretum
8 September 2019, 11.30am - 6pm
The sizzling scent of jalebis, samosa and chaat fills this beautiful botanical garden on Sunday.
With craft and fashion stalls, live performances, poetry, arts workshops, as well as yoga in our well-being tent, vibrant dance and music will entertain and delight all afternoon. The line-up showcases the very best of local and international talent, including Aziz Ibrahim, Kefaya, Mashi Theatre, Manushi, Harjinder Matharu and Biant Singh's drumming circle to name a few.
Come rain or shine, we will be there to celebrate, participate and enjoy.
