We invite all schools, colleges, community groups, artists, drummers, dancers and organisations working with young people to be part of our 2017 Mardi Gras: Reflections of India
The event is professionally managed and fully supported throughout, including access to workshops and training, cost price purchasing of materials, and lots of help on the day. We share all our risk assessments and detailed event planning information to groups taking part and host a leaders’ Briefing approximately 10 days prior to the event.
To be in the parade you have to fit into our theme and our narrative. This year for Reflections of India we have selected a diverse collection of topics to adopt which lend themselves to learning, cultural appreciation and creative interpretation.
You must pre-register your entry with us. The Closing date for entries is 31 March 2017. The Registration Form is attached here for you to download.
Opportunities for Individuals
If you don’t belong to a group or carnival club but want to take part in the parade, contact us and we will signpost you to one if we can. We also need adult dancers/performers for our own in-house costumes section. Experience not necessary but enthusiasm and energy is!
We also welcome volunteers behind the scenes, so if you don’t want to perform but can spare some time, we are always needing extra pairs of hands to make or repair costumes, and/or help with site duties at the event.
