PF Events help make The 2014 British Carnival Great!

Great British Carnival promotes excellence and quality in carnival arts. It brings together some of the UK’s leading Carnival Artists representing Brazilian, Caribbean and indigenous British carnival traditions. 

Touring to carnivals and events across the UK as well as creating its own shows, the team fuses music, dance, infectious rhythms and intense costumes that showcase the best of the country’s carnival scene. 

Showcased in a brand new family-friendly event for the UK’s carnival scene, the main show took place in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Sunday July 27 2014.


PF's trusty staging crew built the stages of The Carnival Stage and Ship of Fools Stage as well as the Heart of Carnival dance floor, Spoken word, Solution and Finale Stages.

It was a fantastic day out with some spectacular costumes and performances - please check out to find out more!

PF set the carnival alight with spotlights and quad audience blinders and injected some colour with LED battens & wash, Par64s and a spectacular moving head light show for The Carnival of the Animals finale.

No carnival would be complete without music! PF provided D&B Audiotechnik PA delay stacks across the park so everyone could dance to the beat.

PF also provided all the audio for the Ship of Fools CarnivalXtra stage which showcased London's best young musicians, rappers and poets. With an NCA PA system and stage monitoring along with Midas Pro2 mixing desks for foh and monitors, all the bands and performers truly sounded Great!
