On the afternoons of Sunday 30 and Monday 31 August Waltham Forest is inviting you to join in on your doorsteps as we bring Carnival to the local streets of Wood Street in Walthamstow and the Beaumont Estate in Leyton with Doorstep Carnival.
Presented by GBCarnival, a troupe of six professional theatre artists will create and perform a boutique Carnival-style street show, socially distant for performers and residential audiences.
Leading Carnival performers from Mandinga and Mahogany Arts, with choreographer Manuela Benini and local dancers, will take to the streets with an amazing array of wild animal costumes, dance and fun and music from top funk percussion squad, Rhythms of the City. Residents are encouraged to join in the fun from their doorsteps, dress up, wave their flags, sing, dance and enjoy as the show passes by their homes.
Go Wild with us by making your own percussion (saucepans, shakers, bells) and make a big noise when you see us. Make a mask and dress up as your favourite wild animal! Just remember to stay safe and keep to social distancing rules.
