According to BBC London's weather forecast for Sunday, London Mela 2006 will be more like a monsoon party this year. So it's sou'westers and wellies for those of you intending to visit this festival of South Asian culture at Gunnersbury Park, beginning 12 noon. Expect Bollywood, bhangra and curry, but also the unexpected: ice sculpture, if it doesn't get washed away by the monsoon predicted to sweep the old metrop. The gardens need it. And it's free (rain and Mela). So you can't grumble.
