Join the Procession

Our fabulous procession is a focal point for Carnival Day.

Hundreds or people take part in the mile long spectacle, including community groups, schools and sponsor organisations such as Oxford Brookes University and the Indonesian Embassy also take part.

We are running a series of workshops to help schools and community groups to plan and get the most out of their involvement.

2018  was fantastic and we can’t wait to see what all the costumes and structures in the walking ‘floats’ this year. Our theme is Space is the Place and provides huge scope from the Space Race of yesteryear, the 50th anniversary of the first landing of the Moon, in July 1969, to the future of space travel and science fiction.

The procession provides an opportunity to be really creative with costumes, banners and props, get dressed up, get involved and enjoy seeing Carnival from the inside. In some cases we can arrange workshops with experienced carnival artists and dancers to help your group look fantastic and move with confidence and style.

We especially welcome any musical groups which can perform on the move.

Our Carnival procession is fossil-fuel-free, so feet, pedals, batteries and wheels power the procession and any other ingenious method of moving along the road and making sound without burning fossil fuels is welcome!

Applications for Carnival Day 2019 will be open soon. Please see the links to the form and guidance notes below. To register your interest and for more information please email Anya artistic_producer@cowleyroadworks.org
