2013 Carnival – Saturday 6th July
‘Promoting participation in the Education and Appreciation of African and Caribbean Arts and Culture’
Carnival theme: ‘Migration’
We are looking for a designer for this years’ programme. If you think you fit the bill, or know someone who can, have a look here and get in touch or pass it on.
St Pauls Carnival, in association with UK Centre for Carnival Arts, New Carnival Company and Carnival Arts Masquerade Foundation are very please to announce we have been successful in our bid for Catalyst Arts: building fundraising capacity scheme.
All deadlines to be a part of this years’ St Pauls Carnival have now passed. If you have applied you will hear from us within the coming weeks.
Various roads around St Pauls have to be closed to ensure the safety of visitors, you can view the full road closure schedule and maps HERE
Sound Systems - Carnival currently has 15 sound systems at the event and it is unlikely that we will have capacity for any more this year, whilst it may seem that there is space, due to the increased crowds now attending the Carnival we have to keep some streets clear for effective crowd management and in 2011 moved some sound system locations for this reason.
