I was really looking forward to the Bradford Mela today, a celebration of South Asian Culture with street theatre music and dance. Unfortunately the event was cancelled at the last minute due to ground conditions at Peel Park. Due to the heavy rain we have had over the last couple of weeks and with more to come, it was considered unwise to allow the event to go ahead. I had a quick look back and came up with this picture from the Mela in 2010. I'm going from memory here, but I think the performer had flown from Pakistan especially for this performance which involved balancing a number of those vessels on top of her head (I can't remember how many, but it was a lot).
