Celebrate! 50 Years of Leeds West Indian Carnival


The Leeds West Indian Carnival has grown from a small celebration born in Chapeltown in 1967 into an annual showpiece of British Caribbean culture that now welcomes performers from all over the country, and attracts crowds of over 150,000 people.

This book is a joyful celebration of a 50 year journey. Using photographs combined with texts describing some of the key moments since carnival first took to the roads of Leeds, it tells the full story of Caribbean-led creativity and multicultural hospitality.
