Inspired by the rich cultural diversity and brilliance of multi-cultural communities Carnivalista Culture is a celebration of the people of Waltham Forest.
If you’re from Chingford, Highams Park, Leyton, Leytonstone or Walthamstow, you can join the Carnivalista Culture Mas Camp. Families and friends of all ages, communities and abilities can take part in the weekly carnival club that runs from May to September at Chingford Hall and Langthorne Park.
Carnivalista Culture will celebrate the customs and traditions of processions and masquerade of the diverse people living in the borough. We will explore the roots, rituals and practices of the abundant cultures settled for generations, that have travelled from across the globe to further enrich the lives of all who live in and visit the borough
Led by award winning Carnival Designer and Director, Roland Noel, and his expert team of carnival makers you will help to design and create costumes, learn simple parade movements and steps and form parade troupes that will take part in events around the Borough and Margate, Notting Hill and Hackney carnivals.
