Hackney Kids Carnival 2019

After a great success in 2018, Hackney Kids Carnival is back for a second electrifying year!


This year, the Schools Programme will be running at Hackney primary schools throughout June and July this Summer Term, culminating in the Kids Carnival event on July 13th 2019.


The project aims to give students the chance to learn about world carnival traditions, develop confidence and new creative skills in carnival arts, and feel pride in their local Hackney community as well as support schools to raise their profile in the local community.


Find out more by watching our video here.


Participating schools will receive:

  • A teacher CPD meeting

  • Teaching resources for lessons about world carnival traditions and Hackney Carnival

  • 6 x weekly workshops for a class of 30 children at your school throughout June & July.

  • A carnival performance/assembly at your school

  • A performance in the Kids Carnival Event in July, alongside other Hackney schools.
