Messages from around the world

We want you to help us involve a much wider audience for Preston City Mela 2024, by connecting us with your friends & family around the globe. As a way of celebrating the rich diversity of South Asian culture and giving Preston an insight into where our audience originates from. We’re wandering if you might request messages from people you know who can’t get to Preston City Mela but might be thinking about us on the day. Here’s an example below from Malvika who lives in Kurla, which lies on the southern end of Salsette Island along the east bank of the Mithi River. Looks beautiful – a tad windy mind.

Her film is a about 25 seconds long but if you want to do a bit more that’s fine – tell us what its like where you are and what you’re doing at that moment – but please sign off with a positive message similar to Malvika’s ‘one heart, one world … Preston City Mela 2024’. They can be in any language too.

Please send your films to – we look forward to seeing your films on our big screen next year. Thanks
