About the Kemptown Carnival
The Kemp Town Carnival was created in the mid nighties, originally a community collaboration between St Georges Church and Sussex House that paid homage to the Great Kemp Town Pram Race, a fancy dress pub crawl across Kemp Town that ran from the mid seventies until 1989.The Kemp Town Carnival has grown from a small village fete event, into Brighton’s own ‘Nottinghill by the Sea’, celebrating the summer with the theme of Flowers and becoming one of cities most cherished community street festivals.

Set in heart of Kemp Town Village, along St Georges Road and its surrounding streets, the Carnival is a wonderful opportunity for many of the local businesses and community groups to showcase their goods and talents. The Carnival has worked with a host of community groups and educational services including the Open Spaces Dance Troupe, Access to Music, The Academy of Creative Training, Street Funk, Northbrooke College, T21 Dance, The Nautical Training Corps, the Max Miller Appreciation Society, the Rainbow Chorus, Middle Street Choir, Amazonias Capoeira, We Bop (Women’s Choir), The Brighton School of Samba and Sussex University Fencing club…to name but a few.

Over the years the Carnival has been privileged to play host to many of the best of Brighton’s artists and musicians, a great deal of which have dedicated their time and talents to helping raise the much needed funds to make the Carnival happen.

With support from local residents and volunteers, local traders and Churches, community groups, Brighton and Hove City Council, and CooktheRabbit Events CIC, the Kemp Town Carnival has become a wonderful, multi generational celebration of summer and creativity in Brighton.
