Huddersfield Carnival is brought to you by HACCT in Partnership with Kirklees Council

Huddersfield Carnival is one of the largest outdoor festivals in West Yorkshire for the whole family to enjoy. On behalf of Huddersfield African Cariibbean Cultural Trust, I would like to thank all of our sponsors who continue help to make the event such a big success

Welcome to Huddersfield Carnival 2011

Huddersfield Carnival is in its 27th year, having grown from one float in the Mayor’s parade to become the largest festival in the Kirklees calendar, attracting an audience of over 40,000. Drawing inspiration from the Caribbean, the Carnival provides a medium through which local communities can develop and display their talents in costume design, music, dance and drama. The Carnival is celebrated over two days with the Carnival Royale Show, where contestants compete for the Crown and the opportunity to lead the Carnival Procession. However, this year, the Show will not take place but will return in 2012 when Carnival returns to Greenhead Park. A new addition to Carnival is the J’ouvert, now in its third year. This is a French abbreviation meaning ‘opening of day’ and signals the start of the bacchanal that is Carnival. Jouvert is highly traditional and full of symbols of culture and heritage. It is steeped in tradition and playing ‘Mud Mas’ involves participants known as Jab Jabs covering themselves, and others, in paint, chocolate mud or white powder. This will start at midnight, with music being the dominating sounds, with revellers parading through the town. On Saturday, 9th July, the Mas Band Parade takes place, commencing from the Hudawi Centre at 1pm and winding its way through the streets of Huddersfield. Bands will display an array of flamboyant costumes and will parade around the town centre to St George’s Square where, each band will have the opportunity to take to the stage. A variety of stalls will be available for purchase of both food and none food including the popular Jerk Chicken. There will also be the children’s area at Parish Gardens and activities, including a steel band, at Market Place. Without Kirklees Arts and Creative Economy and all our sponsors, supporters and committee members, Carnival could not happen. We would, therefore, like to take this opportunity in thanking them all for their continued and valuable support. Kursus Facial - Perumahan Purwokerto - Lentera Post - Ruang Niaga - Drw Skincare

Disabled Access

The Carnival is an event which tries to cater for all people. There will be a viewing area near Harold Wilson’s statue in St George’s Square for wheelchair users and their carers so that they can easily watch the entertainment on the main stage. Toilets including accessible units will be available on Station Street just off St George’s Square. In order to ensure public safety, no vehicles will be allowed through St George’s Square except for the Carnival floats. This means that the five blue badge parking spaces near to Huddersfield Railway Station will be out of action for the whole of Saturday 9th July 2011. All of the parking bays on John William Street at the bottom of the Square will be temporarily designated for blue badge holders only. There will be stewards placed near these bays to ensure only blue badge holders park in them and they will also be able to help you if you need help to get to the railway station. Blue badge holders parking spaces are also available in the following places in Huddersfield town centre: • The Multi-storey car park near to the indoor market • Around Huddersfield Town Hall • Top of Albion Street near High Street • Queen Street near the junction of King Street • Zetland Street • The Kingsgate Centre car park • Oldgate near to Oldgate House • The Bus Station car park • By the Media Centre near to the outdoor market • Pine Street car park near to Huddersfield Sports Centre.
