Capturing Carnival

The dust may have settled on Butetown Carnival for another year but we're not quite done...

A huge amount of effort goes into organising carnival each year - from the costume makers, musicians and dancers involved to all the behind-the-scenes activities needed to deliver a fun, safe and free event for all.

Here's a short film we made with local filmmaker, Tim Tyson Short with music by Jefferson Lobo featuring some of the local carnival team involved. Enjoy!

Many thanks to Keith Murrell, Gemma Hicks, Jefferson Lobo, Laurence Ahmun, Caroline Richards, Alice and Niki Fogaty, June Campbell-Davies, Butetown Arts and Cultural Association, Butetown Pavilion Hub, Oasis Refugee Centre in Splott, Pedal Power in Pontcanna + everyone else involved in this year's carnival parade.
