THE 50TH ST PAULS CARNIVAL

We’d like to extend a very warm thank you to everyone involved in staging St Pauls Carnival 2018. We are grateful to the residents of St Pauls, and our volunteers, as well as Carnival sponsors and partners for their invaluable support in making Carnival happen.

Putting this iconic event on has been possible due to the collaborative efforts of many agencies across the city. Thank you to Avon & Somerset Constabulary for their community-style policing, and to all the emergency services who were present throughout, as well as Bristol City Council and Arts Council England for their ongoing commitment and support.

The clean up operation has been underway since the event finished at 10pm last night and is due to be completed later today with Bristol Waste on site. A record amount of recycling is taking place as part of our mission to reduce environmental impact.

The event which focused on the theme of ‘unity’ was very well attended by young families and multi-generations enjoying the positive vibes of Carnival. We estimate that crowd numbers were likely to have been in excess of 100,000.

Our goal has always been to make Carnival a sustainable event and develop partnerships with sponsors. At this stage we’re hopeful that Carnival will return next year, St Pauls (Bristol) Carnival CIC.

LOST PROPERTY
All lost property is being taken to our office at Docklands, The Settlement, 74-80 City Road, St Pauls. Please email admin@stpaulscarnival.org.uk and hopefully we can reunite you with your property.

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.

St Pauls Carnival CIC

St Pauls Carnival Community Interest Company (CIC) was formed in February 2017 to help create a stable and sustainable future for the iconic event. We are working to promote and celebrate African Caribbean culture and traditions, and to run an accessible and inclusive world-class Carnival and supporting events. As well as using Carnival to inform, engage and inspire people socially and artistically, the CIC is working with local people to increase economic benefits to the community.
