Welcome to the 50th anniversary celebrations of

St Pauls Carnival
Saturday JULY 7th 2018

CELEBRATION - UNITY - COMMUNITY

 

Bringing back Bristol’s first ever carnival from 12 noon to 22:00 on Saturday 7th July 2018 this iconic event, that started back in 1968, has brought people from around the world to the streets of St Pauls to celebrate the best in African Caribbean culture. Where better truly represents the immense creativity, vibrancy and diversity that enriches the city than at carnival? Crossing generations and breaking down boundaries with each year, it is our great pleasure to work with the community to join each street together in Unity this summer.

It’s been four years since the last carnival and although it has been greatly missed by all of us, there have been some instrumental changes made to make it a more enjoyable event on the day and a more sustainable one for carnivals to come!


For Attention Of Residents: Do You Need A Temporary Events Notice?

In order for Carnival to go ahead, there are certain rules that have to be followed to keep in line with the Council and Police. One of these are for residents interested in:
Trading (Food or Alcohol) OR
Playing Music (Sound-system)
on the day to apply for a Temporary Events Notice (TEN for short).

This doesn't take too long but it is mandatory to make sure you can trade all day (midday - 10pm). Our Events team are holding WEEKLY SOUND SURGERIES at the St Pauls Learning Centre for any residents who may need assistance or advice on getting their TEN license secured by the Council. For more details on these, please click here.

If you’re happy to apply on your own, we’ve updated the Applications system here so please do fill this out if you’d like to trade or play music on the day - the deadline is April 30th

About THE CARNIVAL

Since its beginnings back in 1968, St Pauls has grown in size and reputation to become one of Bristol’s biggest attractions. Crossing generations through a celebration of Afro Caribbean culture, it is an event where every float, every stage, every performer and every person tells a story - and that story is how music and dance and community can bring people together.
