The Carnival Crew are the UK’s only costumed carnival drum and dance group. The Carnival Crew is really on a roll at the moment: the Carnival Crew wowed family audiences in excess of 200,000 across Wales and beyond in 2014!

Carnival Crew began in 2009 and have performed live to enthusiastic large-scale family audiences across Wales: highlights include outdoors at Festival No. 6, Green Man Festival and for the Olympic Torch Relay, as well as indoors on the main stage of the Wales Millennium Centre. Carnival Crew’s current shows include costumed performances inspired by Brazilian, African and Afro-Celtic carnival traditions.
