Meet Our Team

For 50 years Leeds West Indian Carnival (LWIC) has been run mainly by an army of volunteers who have helped to make our Carnival one of the UK’s most adored events. From artists and makers, stewards and musicians, behind the scenes or upfront, their goodwill, dedication and sheer determination combined with a love of the culture of Carnival is without question the fuel that has powered Europe’s longest running authentic Caribbean Carnival.

Bolstered by artistic and strategic partnerships, supported by funders and sponsors and with the input of freelance project contributors, LWIC (as a company with charitable status) is run by a committee of trustees whose commitment is without question.
