The overcast skies could not dampen the vibes and colours of arguably Bristol’s most important cultural event.

Through many twists, turns and challenges St Pauls African Carribean Carnival and all its colour and bass graced the streets of Bristol. Though surely struggles remain, to build such a major event while staying true to its roots and community spirit, just two years after Carnival’s future was in question – the team and volunteers pulled it off.

Of course, there will always be rubbish and people waiting in the wings to have a pop, but there are many more who recognise the importance of the event and work hard to make it happen.
