Revealing the power and artistry of Europe's largest and most spectacular street performance, this exhibition celebrates London's signature experience of the August bank holiday weekend.
In addition to a selection of costumes, the exhibition offers an exploration of processes, styles, new angles on traditions and insights on designing for carnival through photographs, designs, filmed interviews with carnival artists, carnival footage and a timeline tracking carnival history. A key feature is the Carnival Interactive, which invites you to step into the street and check out carnival. Like the Midnight Robber character of traditional carnival, this exhibition aims to engage your attention and provoke your interest.
