The Heart of Carnival in Luton


Luton International Carnival are bringing the love to Luton by celebrating ‘Home is Where the Heart Is’. With Luton Town Football Club promoted to League One, the party atmosphere will continue on 27 May when the streets of Luton will be transformed to display the finest, most colourful and creative of carnival costumes.

Luton is always proud to be the first carnival of the UK season and this year they’ve raised the creative standard once again. A special big-up up to the new carnival ‘VIP Club’, which is a group of visually impaired or blind adults and children who are designing and creating their own sensory garden, complete with bees, butterflies and sunflowers.

Mas groups, schools and community groups have been working tirelessly, stitching, cutting, gluing, painting and creating fabulous costumes to wow carnival goers. The legendary local international mas band, Rampage, are ready to display their 2018 collection.

This carnival is supported by London Luton Airport, the Arts Council and Luton Council, and many more organisations give their time for free. The local involvement is what makes Luton’s carnival so special. Bring your love to #LIC18 in Wardown Park on 27 May, from 1pm until 6pm.
