DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC
Leeds City Council and Leeds West Indian Carnival are deeply saddened to announce that Leeds West Indian Carnival 2020 will not be taking place due to the coronavirus pandemic. This decision has been taken with a heavy heart and the demand this will have on council staff, blue-light services, designers and everyone else involved in carnival is enormous. We are thankful for the continued support from Leeds City Council during this difficult time
The carnival community has always been about positivity and spreading love across the city and internationally.
Chairman and Founder of Leeds West Indian Carnival – Dr Arthur France said: “As carnivalist, we know how to unite the city through joy, happiness and adversity and it’s these qualities that will help us get through these difficult times. We will be back in 2021 bigger and better with an array feathers, gems, sequins, costumes and music. I would like to thank everyone involved in carnival over the last 53 years and especially the carnival committee who given up their time for the love of carnival. We support our long standing partner, our friends at Leeds City Council and together we’ll be jammin again”
