September 19th, 12pm-5pm, General Gordon Sq.
Inspired by the diverse and active community groups in the Greenwich area the Woolwich Community Carnival Committee are bringing back carnival to Woolwich this summer on Saturday 19th September.
Woolwich Carnival will be a celebration of local culture and community. There will be a parade, costumes, live music, dance, community stalls, food and crafts, steel drums and plenty of good vibes – a great way to bring neighbouring communities together for a day of collective summer festivities.
This year’s theme is Feeling Good – all things that make us happy.
The carnival is being organised, led and run by local community members and we are asking community groups to get involved. Each community group will contribute in its own way to the carnival; this may be as part of the procession, running a community stall or performing – we are open to ideas.
In the run-up to the event, we will be organising carnival workshops for community groups; these will include costume making, structure building, drum and dance workshops and more – so register early to get involved.
To gather interest we are asking people to download, fill in and return the community registration form from here.
