Preston Mela 2019: 14 photos from this weekend's vibrant feast of sound and colour

Preston’s Flag Market was transformed into a vibrant feast of sound and colour at the weekend.

Traditional Indian string puppets imitating court entertainment, saree draping and Bollywood dancing thrilled visitors to this year’s Preston Mela. The annual festival, which returned to the market on Saturday, celebrates the rich cultural heritage in Preston. This cross cultural mix of entertainment featured craft workshops and information stands as people gathered to watch at the weekend.
