The past August bank holiday saw the return of the Nepali Mela festival, a true celebration of all things Nepal. The venue was once again Kempton Park Racecourse, a location Outdoor Stages have gotten to know very well over the years. So it was no problem for the Outdoor Stages team to provide the main stage production for this year's festival, including sound, lighting, and staging.
So let's delve into a little more detail regarding our brief for this popular annual event.
Outdoor Stages Helps to Bring Nepal to Kempton Park Racecourse
For those unfamiliar, Nepali Mela is an annual festival celebrating Nepalese heritage, traditions, and culture. It's hosted by the Tamu Dhee charity, and thousands of expat Nepalese descend on this festival every year to celebrate their homeland.
This year, the festival took place on the 29th of August, from 10 am to 8 pm, and featured a wide range of events and activities, including a procession. The day ended with performances on the stage provided by us, Outdoor Stages.
So let's tell you a little more about the stage production package supplied to this colourful event.

Given the festival's size, it was only appropriate that we supplied one of our larger 10m x 8m arc roof stages, capable of supporting even the most commanding of associated stage productions.
In the end, due to the nature of the performers and the fact that the festival was a daytime event, we didn't need to bring out the "big guns." Instead, we kept our lighting ensemble reasonably simple, with stage washes, LED PAR cans, a few moving heads, and LED uplighters.
The sound system was more advanced, with one of our coveted d&b audiotechnik Q series outdoor PA systems put into action. This setup included line arrays, stage monitors, and power amps. We complemented the sound with wireless Shure microphones and a digital mixing desk.
We rounded the production off with an imposing LED screen, "flown" from one of our truss systems, which displayed a range of informative messages to aid those speaking and performing on stage.
Overall, the day was a great success, and we're always delighted to be a part of this significant event in the Nepalese community's calendar. We're also thrilled to announce that we've already been booked for next year's Nepali Mela festival.
