flowersgallery Simon roberts, merrie albion - landscape studies of a small island. private view, thursday 18th january, 6-8pm at flowers gallery, 82 kingsland road, london. • the world party and croyden mela, lloyd park, surrey, 2010 • the council-run croyden summer festival began in 1995 as a one-day asian celebration or (in hindi) mela, and grew to incorporate a second world party day that aimed to involve the wider community through street theatre, dance and live bands. in january 2011, a council cabinet meeting run by a conservative majority passed a set of proposals that saw the annual festival axed, along with the cultural beacon, the clocktower arts centre, and david lean cinema, for savings of about £1.5 million a year. the festival was reinstated in 2015 under a new labour-led council. #simonroberts #merriealbion #flowersgallery @simoncroberts
