Island Carnival Memories

A wonderful website has been set up to show the memories of people who have been around the Island Carnivals for a very long time and it’s called Island Carnival Memories

A collection of reminiscences, stories and photographs contributed by Isle of Wight carnival people in a fascinating Oral History project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. It aims to share and celebrate the Island’s rich carnival heritage that has defined our popular culture for more than a century.
