The Platinum Mela
The United Kingdom is celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II, from 02 to 05 June 2022.
With the support of the London Borough of Newham and the National Lottery Awards for All, M.A.U.K is celebrating this momentous occasion on a grand scale on Friday, 3 June 2022 at Flanders Playing Field in East London. Our vision is to use the occasion to highlight the vibrant multi-culturalism, harmonious inclusivity and equal opportunities that encapsulate contemporary Britain. The festivities include music, dance, cuisine, stalls, parades and anything and everything else that brings communities together and unites people. We hope that we can highlight how migration enriches society through the various arts forms of the many migrated communities and with a strong focus on commonwealth countries.
