Event Description

Organisers of Leeds West Indian Carnival have issued a vital update about how the event will go ahead this year.

The carnival, which is held on Bank Holiday Monday in August every year, went virtual last year after the event was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Leeds West Indian Carnival was established in 1967 as a remedy for those experiencing homesickness after coming over from the Caribbean.

It has been taking place on the streets of Harehills and Chapeltown for over 50 years.

It was hoped this year things would go back to normal this year, however, ‘Legacy Carnival’ will be virtual this year.

In the lead up to Carnival Day in August, a number of events are held around the city in preparation for the event.

The organisers, who made the announcement in June before the latest news of restrictions being lifted, said all the events will be virtual with the exception of the Prince and Princess Show and King and Queen show as they will be held at a Covid secure venue.
