Details of free workshops running in August to create two performing groups for Ryde’s Main and Illuminated Carnivals in 2018 have been confirmed. Thanks to funding received from Arts Council England, Tesco Bags of Help and the annual grant we receive from Ryde Town Council we have been able to join forces with the New Carnival Company and Shademakers UK to offer these workshops to enable young people over 11 years of age the opportunity to work with Carnival Artists and Choreographers to create these two performing groups to celebrate Ryde Carnival’s 130th Birthday. For more details see our Get Involved page and like and follow us on facebook.
