Health and safety

We always have health and safety at the heart of Newcastle Mela. St. John’s Ambulance will be in attendance, we have a site office where you can come and talk to us if you need some urgent help and our official event staff will be available across the site to help where needed. You will be able to identify staff by their high visibility jackets and official badges.

If you are coming to the event with a big group of people or young children, it’s always best to make a rendezvous point where you can meet if you get lost from one another.


You are welcome to bring your dog but we ask that you keep him or her on a lead at all times.
