Carnival Creations

Light Night Leeds is an annual Arts and Lights festival, one of the largest in the UK that is heading towards it's 15th year. Each year it is bigger, brighter and bolder with numerous events held in some of Leeds most recognisable Arts, Cultural and Historic buildings and locations.

Light Night 2017 was a special year as the event coincided with the year of the 50th anniversary of Leeds West Indian Carnival. I worked at The Tetley as part of a team of carnival artists, experts and specialists who helped people to get into the carnival spirit - perhaps before going to see the live Light Night Carnival parade. We had glitter, gems, feathers, make -up, faux tattoos and all kinds of bling to help people get carnival happy and carnival ready.
