Night of Festivals, London 2016
The sun shone all weekend (6 - 7 August 2016) on Potters Field Park and More London resulting in a vibrant, successful and hugely attended event on London's South Bank. Everyone celebrated the opening of the Olympics in true Rio fashion with Paraiso Samba, Shademakers Carnival Troupe, Batala London, Kinetika Bloco, Gozart Carnival, Maracuta, London School of Samba, Mandinga Arts, and more, entertaining the crowds with processional carnival spirit! This was a culmination of our European FREEDOM project. As the sun set on Saturday 6th August, Stelzen Arts, Oakleaf Creativity, Sabar Sounds and Mandinga Arts performed a stunning lit up carnival from London's Design Museum up the riverside. A finale on Potters Field Park was created to a crowd of thousands with the beautiful backdrop of London's skyline - a truly spectacular event!
