Free events in city parks

Published on Thursday, November 17, 2016

THE HISTORY of the Belgrave Mela is the theme of a free talk in Abbey Park on Sunday (20 November).

Leicester’s Mela has celebrated South Asian arts and Indian culture in the city since 1982 – and at 2pm on Sunday, Gemma Kiddy will talk about the event’s early days, and the four years it spent in Abbey Park.

The free event will take place in the Education Centre in Abbey Park. Pre-booking is not required and anyone with an interest is welcome to attend.

On the following Sunday (27 November) at 1pm, there’s a free guided walk around Castle Gardens.

Led by a blue badge guide, the walk will take in the gardens and the historic castle motte.

Places on the walk should be booked in advance at storyofparks@leicester.gov.uk or by calling 0116 454 4935.
