ST PAUL’S CARNIVAL COMMISSION (BRISTOL): Talking Carnival: In light of the suspension of funding from St Paul’s African Caribbean Carnival, we were engaged along with a colleague by the newly formed Carnival Commission to conduct an options appraisal to help support the future development of a St Paul’s Carnival. The specific activities undertaken were:
Two online surveys – one for St Paul’s residents and others with an interest in the Carnival, and one for businesses and stakeholders
Two community consultation exercises held in St Paul’s
Options appraisal exercise setting out a number of possible operating models for a future Caribbean Carnival in St Paul’s Bristol
Case studies of three large scale outdoor festivals.
