“A Celebration Of Nelson Mandela” is the theme for Leicester Caribbean Carnival 2014, which takes place at Victoria Park and the City Centre on 2nd August 2014.
Participants for this year’s Street Carnival are being encouraged to focus on this theme to come up with ideas for their presentations on Carnival Day. We want to see this theme not only in carnival costumes but also on the floats accompanying the troupes on the road. Let’s paint pictures using the vast array of colours available to us creatively, as we celebrate and reflect on what carnival means to us as a people living in a multi-cultural city like Leicester.
The challenge is on and apart from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners for floats and troupes there will be prizes for creativity, use of colour and theme.
We are looking for volunteers to serve as street carnival stewards and collectors, stall monitors and in other roles. On the artistic side we are always scouting for talent and provide support to groups wishing to produce a costumed band. The opportunities are varied so feel free to contact us either by email or on the phone.
As we move forward we are putting in place the tools to help us with our programmes and projects.
Our website and use of social media as marketing tools are now in place and we encourage you to log in from time to time for up to date information.
