This year we are seeking to work with the incredible artists from the New Carnival Company to deliver workshops with community groups to build extraordinary illuminated lanterns.  

The New Carnival Company have recently returned from Rio working with groups of people with disabilities to access the Rio Carnival. We are really excited that they want to come to Worthing to share their knowledge. This means that skills learnt can be shared year on year to our own community groups who can then be supported to take part in the event. We have made sure our route is fully accessible and short so that everyone can take part.  

Our vision for this year is to see the most wonderful structures paraded by the people who have made them over the course of the next few months. We have ensured our new parade route is accessible to all including those on wheels and we would actively be encouraging community groups with disabilities to take part in the making of the structures and participating in the parade.


We are really proud to be working with
