This year the city centre will be awash with a kaleidoscope of colour and creativity as we present our first Mela Carnival.
All the fun of the carnival! Bringing together hundreds of participants and artists from across the city and beyond our spectacular carnival parade will fill the streets with vibrant global costumes, pulsating world music and dance and amazing processional sculpture.
