The event relies on a huge army of volunteers to help get the event up and running. There are loads of ways to get involved and variety of roles. It's a great platform to gain work experience if you are interested in working in the arts or events industry and a great way to meet people and create a fantastic event for the community.
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.
