Preston’s Flag Market came alive with a celebration of the city’s South Asian community.

The Mini Mela, which used to be a much larger event in Avenham Park, has moved to the city centre.

From 12noon to 4pm on Saturday (9 July) there was traditional dance and music.

Crowds gathered to see the performances as the city’s Asian community showed how they party.
