We’d like to say a BIG THANK YOU

Northampton Carnival would like to thank everyone for supporting them and making sure it was a hugely successful event despite the challenges faced by organisers.


In 2004 a small group of volunteers took up the challenge of re-introducing carnival to the streets of Northampton bringing a multicultural flavour to the new event.

The Northampton Carnival Arts Consortium was formed and on Saturday 11th June 2005 they produced the first revived Northampton Carnival.

The main aims of NCAC are:
• To bring a high quality carnival – costumes, music, performances, etc to Northampton that is easily accessible to the population of Northamptonshire.

• To foster, encourage and promote an understanding and appreciation of carnival with a multi-cultural flavour.

• To provide a meaningful liaison between NCAC and groups, institutions and organisations (local, regional, national and international) with similar objectives.

• To promote the creative and multicultural skills of the people of Northamptonshire and in so doing enhance their quality of life.
