UK art fairs and festivals.
This category is exclusively for UK Carnivals within identifiable traditions.

Please note that the myriad other celebrations which are also called carnivals will only be considered for a listing in their locality.

For websites about fairgrounds served by travelling fairs only; permanent/fixed amusement parks should be submitted here.
"Mela" is derived from a Sanskrit word for "meeting"; in the early 1980's, a few towns in the UK established small festivals - a few stalls and a procession - focussed on and for their communities of Asian origin.

Over 20 years, some of these have grown into substantial multi-cultural annual festivals of arts and culture.
