An epic opening party featuring live music, costumes 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 a drink from Bristol Beer Factory and enjoy an exciting line-up of live music, art, costumes 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.
