Procession workshops

Workshops for schools and community groups

How to get the most from joining in

Icons of Art

ICONS OF ART’ is the theme for this year’s Carnival.

Participating in the procession down the Cowley Road, from The Plain to SS Mary & John Church, is a wonderful opportunity for schools and community groups to get creative and be part of the biggest and most culturally diverse annual community event in the County.

Getting involved provides an opportunity to learn new skills and explore different talents with your pupils; to involve pupils and their families in a significant multi-cultural festival, and celebrate your identities with pride.

We encourage all schools who are definitely committed or considering  participating to attend one of our workshops which will help you make the most out of the experience.
