Whitley Carnival workshops - Whitley Wood
Bring your friends and family to these fun and easy-to-do costume making workshop on Wednesday 24th May and Wednesday 7th June at Whitley Wood Community Centre to take part in Whitley Carnival on Sunday 11th June 2023.
Whitley Carnival is a new event that will see 1000’s of people coming together on Sunday 11th June to celebrate Whitley past, present and future through the creation of amazing costumes, exciting parade performances, music and giant puppets.
Whitley Carnival parade will weave its way through the street of Whitley before heading to The John Madejski Academy for a fantastic fun day with stalls, food, performances and more.
Everyone is invited.
TAKE PART IN A WORKSHOP TO BE PART OF THE PARADE
In the run up to the carnival we will be running costume making workshops across Whitley where you can come and create your own colourful and fun costume to bring along to the parade.
Using cardboard, fabric and with lots of imagination we will be celebrating Whitley’s natural wildlife, green spaces as well as urban life and the families that live here. The workshops are suitable for all ages and our lovely team of artists will be on hand to support you and provide all necessary guidance.
Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
At the end of the workshop you will take your costume home with you and be given all the information you need about where to come on the day to join the parade.
Please book one ticket per person attending the workshop.
Whitley Carnival is produced by Aspire2 in partnership with Whitley Community Development Association and supported by Arts Council England and the Earley Charity.
