Since starting in 1968, St Pauls Carnival has become recognised as one of Bristol’s most iconic and culturally significant events. After three years off, Carnival is now back thanks to the hard graft of many in the local community.

The Carnival procession will pass underneath some of the stunning murals of the ‘Seven Saints’ of St Pauls, including that of Carmen Beckford – community development worker and one of the initial organisers of Carnival. Here are some lush shots from across the ages that capture some of that spirit born from the Windrush generation.
