Introduction

One of the oldest Caribbean carnivals in the UK, the festival is run by the local people of Leeds. Sunday is dedicated to the procession, and on Monday the park hosts a live stage featuring the best in reggae music.

Leeds Carnival Committee was the first in the UK to start carnival day with the traditional J’Ouvert in the early hours of the morning, before Carnival officially starts in the afternoon. Although sound systems line the streets on the route, only traditional instruments are allowed on the three-hour procession itself as it snakes its way through Chapeltown and back to Potternewton Park.
