2019 images & film

Once again this year the event was full of energy, the weather was kind and all the preparation & hard work paid off. It was great to see such a large number of people enjoying the festival, including a diverse array of Prestonians, people from further afield (& other Mela’s) and dignatories. Thank you so much to everyone that helped us create such a special event!
