Born in 2009, Carnival Network South is the UK’s first constituted Carnival Network. As a membership organisation our mission is to advance and advocate for excellence in the Carnival, Outdoor, Community and Combined Arts sectors.
From costume and float markers to musicians, artists, producers, and event organisers we aim to cover and represent all aspects of the ever-evolving carnival arts-form.
Proudly our Carnival members include Bridgwater, St Pauls, Gloucester, Bath, Cowley Road, Reading, the New Carnival Company on the Isle of Wight and many more. Led by the needs of our members to date we have delivered conferences, campaigns, conducted research and lobbied for more resources for our sector.
