Welcome to your section of the website, created for residents in St Pauls and neighbouring areas to find out how plans for this years carnival might affect you and how you can get involved!
To get up to date to where we are with planning, we've put together a residents' letter to relay what's important information on:
The overall area ('event footprint')
Location of sound systems
Litter and refuse collection
The Carnival vision 2018
The many different ways for you to get involved
We are so excited to be getting celebrating the 50th Anniversary of St Pauls Carnival this year. After 50 years of bringing together communities and showcasing the incredible amount of culture and diversity in the city streets, it will be returning this year on Saturday 7th July from 12 noon to 22:00.
There have been some changes to how things will run on the day to make sure we comply with the Council but we have tried to make these processes as seamless as possible. One of these changes is the Temporary Events Notice (TEN for short) which ALL residents need to have if:
Trading food and/or alcohol
Playing music (a sound-system)
Get advice at our Sound Surgeries from 10am-midday every Thursday at St Pauls Learning Centre, or drop-in to our RESIDENTS' MEETING on Monday, June 18 at Docklands, The Settlement, 74-80 City Road from 6-8pm.
For more details on the surgeries and some tips click here.
If you're happy to submit the application on your own, we've recently updated the process. If you'd like to trade or have a stall at the Carnival, click here for more details.
Food Hygiene Courses have been available for Traders to get their food safety certificate secured to sell food/drink on the day of Carnival, and so far 45 St Pauls residents have gained certification through these courses.
Bristol City Council will hold further training if there is enough demand - please register at: firstname.lastname@example.org
