Carnival Celebration 2021 on Saturday 9 October aims to celebrate UK carnival culture in the comfort of the Shaw Theatre.
Audiences can expect a showcase of music, dance, costumes and drama, illustrating the history of carnival through a diverse range of artists and performers. In addition to the show there will be stalls with crafts and carnival merchandise on sale.
Organised by Caribbean UK Community Group, (CUKCG), the event seeks to fill the void of two years of missed carnivals, and to provide a lift in relation to the various challenges Covid-19 has presented.

They also seek to entice a new and wider audience base, raising awareness and giving them the opportunity to see the full diversity and creativity that constitutes carnival culture.
CUKCG Director Clayton Brown told Soca News, “We wish to provide a celebration that helps to reconnect families and the community with the beautiful diversity of the carnival art form. The show is an addition to the carnival calendar, and with community support we would like to make it an annual event.”
Doors will open at 5pm for this two-hour showcase, with showtime at 6pm.
Tickets are £10 in advance, and may be purchased at shaw-theatre.com.
