Carnival in the Undergrowth

Carnival in the Undergrowth

Sunday 5th March, at Bridge Farm, Bristol

Thank you all for making the Carnival in the Undergrowth possible! A huge shout-out to our amazing crew of volunteers, facilitators, and performers. We are unmeasurably grateful to this amazing community that supports us, we hope you all enjoyed the Carnival, and we hope to see you all again in the Undergrowth very soon.

Welcome to the world of the Carnival - a place of liberation where chaos, humour, unordinary politics and free personal expression guide us in celebration and shared possibilities to reimagine the future. Themes of the carnival can be interpreted in many ways, revolving and evolving around the natural world, its ongoing narrative legacies and its essential ability to uplift and inspire the blossoming of our communities.

Carnivals around the world provide a rare opportunity to step outside the confines of ordinary life, becoming your wildest and most natural self! Our events seek to dissolve the boundaries between audiences and artists and we always encourage participant interaction, fancy dress, shared creativity and self expression. This communal day included explorative visual arts, creative workshops, fresh food, live music, and otherworldly performances, checkout the lineup below!
