The intention was not to put on a big street party this year. Any large scale occasion of 100,000 people needs a year to plan safely and effectively. St Pauls Carnival CIC was formed at the start of this year to produce a long-term future for St Pauls Carnival. The focus going forward is to provide a landmark occasion in 2018 for its 50th anniversary and steady finances and management structure for the future. Therefore although it’s disappointing not to have a carnival this summer, we are concentrated on the future and Carnival’s long-term success.
