NEWCASTLE CARNIVAL IS BACK FOR 08

NEWCASTLE CARNIVAL IS BACK FOR 08
The old Newcastle carnival is back for 2008 in the shape of the Kids Karnival, a series of children’s fun day’s events that run through out the summers. Due to the popularity of 2007 Kids Karnival the organisers have planned a bigger and better series of events this summer. This year the event features guest appearances of Steel drum band Bhand, football by experienced tutors, Street dance workshops by popular local dance groups and headed local young people. Also there will be opportunities to have your face painted, go on the kiddies fairground, bounce to the skies on Cheeky monkeys bouncy castles, be entertained by some of the best kids entertainers in the country and much more.
The Kids Karnival is an event created by the DJ School which began in 2005 and grew out of the DJ School project delivered and initiated in 2002, by community urban arts group Verbal Arts and funded by Youth Music. The overwhelming success of this project led to the DJ School Project's expansion in 2004, seeing two more schools join the original DJ School in Hanley. Since its creation the DJ School has earned a reputation for delivering a high quality project for emerging young artists. The DJ School works with disadvantaged and marginalized young people across Staffordshire to engage with them in the art of DJ-ing, Rap, Music Tech, Dance and Performance providing training, courses and activities with the aim of building confidence, a means for young people to express themselves creatively and to guide participants into launching a career in the arts and music industry.

The event is organised by Gary Oliver former Stoke-on-Trent mayoral candidate, nationally acclaimed poet, the and local celebrity, Sarah Armitt from Verbal Arts Company, a local arts group.
