Witness a collage of carnival colour, dance and the pulsating rhythms of Trinidad as vibrant costumes soar through Bullring & Grand Central.

ACE dance and music, the UK’s top black-led dance company invite you to experience the extravaganza of carnival in full swing. Get up, feel the energy pulsating through you and join in the spectacular sights and sounds of the Caribbean.

Plus, absorb the vibe as the Community Mass Choir led by Black Voices fill Bullring & Grand Central with the magical energy of melody and song.

Presented by Bullring & Grand Central, co-produced by ACE dance and music and Birmingham Hippodrome.
