Caribbean Carnival 2008

Back to African Caribbean Heritage Digital Archive project home page

This film about the Manchester Caribbean Carnival in 2008 includes interviews with visitors, history and background with Sonia Stewart and Micke Bisson carnival organisers, music and archives footage, parade and live performances.

The first carnival was held on 31 May 1971. The different Caribbean islands had floats and flew their own flags, and they were joined by the police band, an Irish band, a Scottish band and many local white community groups. The parade went from the park and round the City Centre. Later on the carnival has been held in August in recognition of Emancipation Day.
