Dazzling creations adorn both junior and adult ‘royalty’ at the hotly anticipated Leeds Carnival Prince and Princess and King and Queen Shows; Soca Monarchs tease and amuse with the original sounds of the West Indies; and J’Ouvert is the revelers early morning warm up on Carnival Day. Yet nothing compares to the total abandon and spectacle of the big parade. Click here to see our full programme of events.
We are creating a cultural and artistic legacy for the city of Leeds using the arts and disciplines of Caribbean carnival – costume artistry, manufacture and performance, steel pan, calypso and soca music.
We host workshops and masterclasses to share carnival artforms with individuals schools, colleges, community organisations and companies.
