Pop-up Carnival

In collaboration with East Street Arts, Leeds West Indian Carnival made a spectacular return to Leeds city centre on Saturday 16 September, for Heritage Open Days 2023.

Celebrating the rich Caribbean history and inclusive culture of Carnival, the Carnival Legacy: Pop-up Street Performance event saw New Briggate – a former parade route – come alive with the vibrant colours and joy of Carnival, as part of East Street Arts’ Hidden Histories of New Briggate Project.
