Latest News About 2015 Carnival



St Paul’s Afrikan Caribbean Carnival presents : Grass Roots – A Community Showcase on  September 5th at the Malcolm X Centre, St Paul’s, Bristol. Expect participation, high quality performances, activities and a complete transformation of place and space.

The showcase will be split into two events:

. 1)  A free family day from 12 – 6pm, with Carnival arts and workshops, a Windrush Stage, a wellbeing area, indoor market, amazing food, pop up art gallery, cinema and an explosion of visual art, music, dance and costume.

. 2)  A live variety show from 10pm – late, featuring the best talent that St Paul’s and the community has to offer plus very special guests.

Both events are ticketed and numbers are limited. Tickets will be available from Monday 13 July via event brite and through the Malcolm X Centre reception. The daytime event is free of charge but you must have a ticket to gain entry. The evening event is £8 early bird, £10 second release and £15 final release – tickets will not be available on the door.

Further information about September 5th and other participation opportunities over the summer, will be available on our website and Facebook page over the coming weeks and months.

These events are supported by Bristol City Council and Arts Council England and we thank them for their ongoing funding and commitment to St Paul’s Afrikan Caribbean Carnival.

There will be no large scale carnival event this year. The organisation is working hard with funders and supporters to make sure we can deliver a successful Afrikan Caribbean Carnival in Bristol for many years to come.

St Paul’s Afrikan Caribbean Carnival is a community event and organisation. We thank everyone who has supported us over our nearly 50 years of existence. We ask for your continued support as we realign the organisation and build towards a Carnival event that has participation, engagement, talent development, opportunities and the best arts and culture at its centre. We look forward to working with you through this challenging and transitional time, and towards our very special 50th anniversary celebrations in 2018.
