Today bluemeanie and I went to the Croydon Mela with Tessa and Jim and Alex and Holly. The most amazing thing was this labyrinth of colour, see pictures above (click to embiggen). One dons robes (provided) the colour of which is a primary colour. Then you enter the labyrinth - made up of pods which are also all of different colours - mostly primary - and filter through the sunlight in that bright colour. Somewhere in the middle was a “white/grey” zone where there were some musicians playing chilled new-age music. A great experience. The Mela website describes it thus:

This large inflatable structure is a walk-in labyrinth of intense colour and light. The Colourscape experience has been compared to being “wrapped in a rainbow” - long views of the most intense colours open up in every direction.

Musicians will perform throughout the day with Mongolian Overtone Singing, Tibetan Singing Bowls, panpipes, Chinese percussion, with a performance by Croydon school children.
