The Kemp Town Carnival was created in the mid nighties, originally a community collaboration between St Georges Church and Sussex House

It has grown from its humble beginnings as a small village fete, into Brighton’s ‘Nottinghill by the Sea’, celebrating the summer with the theme of Flowers and becoming one of cities most cherished community street festivals.

Set in heart of Kemp Town Village, along St Georges Road and its surrounding streets, the Carnival is a wonderful opportunity for many of the local businesses and community groups to showcase their goods and talents. The Carnival has worked with a host of community groups and educational services including the Open Spaces Dance Troupe, Access to Music, The Academy of Creative Training, Street Funk, Northbrooke College, T21 Dance, The Nautical Training Corps, the Max Miller Appreciation Society, the Rainbow Chorus, Middle Street Choir, Amazonias Capoeira, We Bop (Women’s Choir), The Brighton School of Samba and Sussex University Fencing club…to name a few.

Over the years the Carnival has been privileged to play host to many of the best of Brighton’s artists and musicians, a great deal of which have dedicated their time and talents to helping raise the much needed funds to make the Carnival happen.

We will be holding a string of wonderful fundraising events every month in the run up to the Carnival itself – so keep an eye out for our latest news. Sign up to our newsletter to find out more about these fab fundraisers but also workshops and showcase events.
