With the release of online tickets for the Mela only a short while away, we are drumming up support for what promises to be our biggest festival to date.

This year’s festival will feature a spectacular finale show which will see Botanic go to Bollywood with a magical procession, dance, music, storytelling and special effects.

We are on the hunt for 100 community performers to help us bring the show to life. In particular, we are looking for 20 dancers and 20 drummers who will work in a series of workshops throughout July & August and take part in the show at Mela on the 26th August.

Dance participants will learn simple Bollywood routines while drumming participants will learn rhythms on the Indian Dhol drum.
