Whilst large-scale events like Brighton Pride have been postponed with the organisers deciding to postpone for a second year running, the new team behind Kemptown Carnival wanted to ensure the spirit of carnival stays alive within the safety of the guidelines set out by local government. They are confident the 2021 event will be able to go ahead after careful consultation with Brighton & Hove Council.
Ahead of the 100-year anniversary next year in 2022, a brand-new location, still within Kemptown, will see Covid restrictions easier to adhere to, more space, and a greater focus on the local communities and creative areas which make up the carnival day itself.
In a scaled down event this year, the carnival team are planning on having a variety of different creative groups and communities at the heart of the main event. This will include stages and individual performance areas. This will then be supported with other events in the lead up to and following the main event. The carnival date will be announced later towards the end of June.
Until then if you are interested in being a volunteer, promoting your products and services as a local business on one of the market stalls, or you are a local artist and want to register to perform, visit the carnival registrations pages now by visiting the Kemptown Carnival website.
Registrations are open until mid-July and you can follow all the latest updates by following @KTCarnival on any of the main social media platforms.
