In April 2017, we teamed up with Carnival Arts Group and the Hereford River Carnival to establish four new Carnival Clubs in schools based in South Wye, Herefordshire: Blackmarston School, Marlbrook Primary School, Barrs Court and the Kindle Centre.
The clubs engaged with over 250 children + their families, allowing them to take part in creative and fun workshops focussing on drumming, dance workshops, costume and structure creation for Hereford River Carnival.
The project supported children's participation in the clubs and the carnival itself, whilst also ensuring that through these engagements and activities, they feel part of a bigger community, and community event. We aim to encourage the integration of young people from all backgrounds and abilities.
More carnival clubs are planned for the future as part of the Wye River Festival 2018!
