This is a fantastic opportunity for local children, young people and adults to take part in carnival and street theatre, bringing alive some exceptional carnival costumes (and giant puppets) designed by the internationally renowned companies Mandinga Arts and Kinetika.
No previous performance experience is necessary just enthusiasm and commitment, though ArtReach welcomes those with an existing interest. The costumes are fantastic and the experience will be memorable!
