Leeds Carnival 50

Throughout 2017 we’re celebrating 50 years of Leeds West  Indian Carnival.

The first in the UK, in 1967, to incorporate all three essential elements of authentic West Indian carnival – costumes, music and a masquerade procession – it is Europe’s longest running Caribbean carnival parade.

Half a century later we are proud to be one of the North’s biggest and most adored annual events.

We hope you’ll join us for our biggest and best celebrations yet. Until then, take a look at some of our plans, and our partners’ to celebrate 50 golden years. Keep watching for more announcements to come!
