Whilst we are core funded to deliver elements of the Carnival programme and to run the organisation from Bristol City Council and The Arts Council England, this doesn’t represent nearly as much funds as are necessary to deliver the large scale carnival event and meet our other important goals of artist development, educating through the arts about the Afrikan Caribbean Journey, youth development and training.

We ask a long list of sponsors each year to get involved with what we are doing for St Pauls, Bristol and the UK.  With an average footfall of 50,000 at anyone time the Carnival is the perfect place to advertises and expose your brand.  Perhaps you are an energy company that wants customers to switch to you or maybe you can offer a service at the Carnival such as water, security radios, etc. Despite reaching out we have not met our target for support.

We are looking for support towards:

Youth Training Initiative – Packages start at £500 – Assist us in assisting the young people in our community to learn the crafts and skills needed to help run the Carnival event.  From customer service, first aid, stage management right across the board we need people behind the scenes and on the ground as well as on the stage performing.  We want to create opportunities for skill development and opportunities for our youth.

Sponsor an artist – starts at £500 – to enable them to buy studio time, engineering, travel for artists development opportunities and performances etc.

Street Art Steel Pans – starts at £200 – have your name feature on a decorated steel pan that will feature at the Carnival.

Traditional Caribbean Dance Masterclasses with Angie Amra Anderson – Starts at £250. We invited world class Bristolian down to Bristol on the 25th of April to lead a dance workshop.  It was incredible and we would like to keep this going. We need additional funds for drums, hall hire, drummers, and skirts to be made for practice and performance.


Stage Sponsors – starts at £2000 – Branding, associated marketing, publicity

Sound Sites – Start at £5000

Commercial Mas Band on the road / promotions  – Starts at £1200 plus in kind added value such as free products and / or buggies for PA on the road.

Bespoke packages available on request.  Call us on 01179 444 176 or email cleo@stpaulscarnival.co.uk
