Katumba Halloween Carnival
5 months ago
28 Oct 2023
Every October as part of Black History Month Katumba holds a range of events in Liverpool that culminate in the Halloween Parade in Liverpool City Centre.
Merging a wide variety of visual and performing arts, we bring professional artists from across the UK to work with the local community in delivering a varied Workshop Programme, which feeds into the production of a large scale, imaginative, immersive outdoor spectacle – the Carnival Parade.
Our artists employ skill and imagination to produce carnival artefacts such as lanterns, drums and costumes, develop and convey insights and experiences, and construct safe, exploratory environments and spaces to work within, before coming together at the Parade to realise the shared vision of the Parade itself.
Now in its eighth year, with 185 artists and performers and an audience of 4,000 people, the Halloween Carnival Parade has become the focal public Halloween event for Liverpool.
