Arnolfini - est 1961

Come and join us for an epic opening party featuring music, punch and dancing.

Join us for the Launch Party of Carnival Popup, where we aim to re-capture the excitement and spirit of St Paul’s Carnival. Grab yourself a carnival-special rum punch, buy a t-shirt to support next year’s carnival and enjoy an exciting night of music and dancing. Plus, if you keep your eye out, you might even spot yourself in some of the photographs!

On 6 July, a group of photographers will hit the streets of Bristol capturing the spirit of St Paul’s Carnival. From behind-the-scenes preparations through to the masquerade procession and the joyous crowd: the Carnival will be fully photographed.

One week later, some of the best photographs will be showcased at Arnolfini in our Carnival Pop-Up.

Be the first to see the installation at our Launch Party on Friday 12 July.
