A music festival is returning to Slough for the first time in ten years.

Set to go ahead last year, Slough Mela was postponed "until further notice" just one week before it was set to take place on August 6, 2023.

Now a year on, a new date has been given by the organisers, with tickets set to go on sale next month.

Slough Mela, which boasts it is the UK's largest Mela experience, is coming to town on Sunday, August 18, 2024.

"Mela" is a type of fair or festival, with Slough Mela aimed at celebrating culture and diversity.

Managing director of Asian Star Radio, Ray Siddique, previously said: "Slough Mela is a family festival targeting largely local residents.

"There hasn't been something here for some time - since the pandemic.

"This event should hopefully give the opportunity to local people to come and have a great day out."

The event, run by Bright Star Events, will feature a fun fair, picnic area trade stands, a food court and live music.

The event was last held in 2014 when it proved to be extremely popular across the UK.

Opportunities have now opened up for local businesses to become a part of the festival and showcase their products and services at stalls.

Any business owners looking to take part can email info@sloughmela.co.uk.

Slough Mela has the capacity for around 15,000 attendees and will be hosted at Upton Court Park.

The event will open at 12pm, running until 8:30pm.
