Mela on Main Street

Sat 28th March, 10am - 1pm

Thanks to the Commonwealth Games Legacy, the Mela on Main Street will see Neilston transformed for the day with a Bazaar at the shops and a range of family friendly walking and cycling activities throughout the village.


Don't miss the chance to celebrate local life, get active, and find out about all the great range of opportunities on our doorstep!


The Mela on Main St, Saturday March 28th 10-1pm will see Neilston transformed for the day with the colour, costumes, music and food of India, in celebration of the Commonwealth Games and Neilston's ties to the Indian sub-continent, past and present. Come and see the bazaar at the shops and enjoy performances from Dhol drummers, the Neilston and East Renfrewshire Youth Pipe Band and a few other surprises!


Other activities include the first ever "Cycle Neilston Bike Festival" including an off-road Timber Trail, a cycle round the village and free Dr. Bike to get your bike in shape for the day and the rest of the year. Win a prize at the Mount Everest Treasure Trail, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Sir Chris Bonnington's ascent of Mount Everest in 1975, at which he and his team wore locally made "Neilston Extra Strong" laces on their boots!


Don't miss the great display of books on Indian food and cooking at the Neilston Community Library and exhibitions at the Bank including Neilston Amateur Artists annual exhibition; a selection of Paisley Shawls; photographs of Indian life and landscapes; and a spinning wheel in action!


If you're ready for a seat after that, visit our local restaurants and cafes who are serving great food and drinks throughout the day.
