Over 1000 people will perform in our largest procession to date. Hundreds of professional carnival performers will join forces with local schools, clubs and community groups to create a huge collaborative performance that takes over the entire city centre!

Over a year of preparation goes into creating this colourful spectacle which will see a new collection of costumes unveiled and a special finale around Laura Fountain featuring hundreds of drummers, horn players and dancers.

Costume Hire

We’re opening up our enormous collection of costumes to the public! Get dressed up and join the parade - perfect for hen parties and stag do’s, team building and surprise birthdays. The funds raised from the hire costs will help us maintain our stock, store them safely throughout the year and organise more community workshops so we can keep growing our collection.
