The World Party and Croydon Mela, Lloyd Park, Surrey, 1 August 2010 from the series (2007-2017), currently exhibited , Kingsland Road, London until 10 March. The council-run Croydon Summer Festival began in 1995 as a one-day Asian celebration or (in Hindi) mela, and grew to incorporate a second World Party day that aimed to involve the wider community through street theatre, dance, and live bands. In January 2011, a council cabinet meeting run by a Conservative majority passed a set of proposals that saw the annual festival axed, along with the city’s cultural beacon, the Clocktower arts centre, and the David Lean Cinema, for savings of about £1.5 million a year. The festival was reinstated in 2015 under a new Labour-led council. photography
