The New Carnival Company is the leading carnival arts development agency in the South of England.
We are a team of highly experienced carnival artists and producers, teachers and trainers, project managers and outdoor event specialists who believe that carnival and other forms of celebratory arts can make a real difference to people and places.
We are based at The Coaching House in Ryde on the Isle of Wight, a creative workspace and administrative base with facilities for production, teaching and small scale conferencing. We retain use of the facilities of the IW Council’s Learning Centre at Westridge (formerly the Carnival Learning Centre) to deliver some of our core learning programmes.
The New Carnival Company is proud to be part of Arts Council England’s National portfolio and share their vision of Achieving great art for everyone.
