Before annual Carnival parades, it is a tradition for the Carnival community to come together and display their costumes at an evening Gala. This can be a competitive affair such as a King and Queen competition, where the most breath-taking and elaborate costumes, made by the country’s best designers, compete for prizes. Or a Gala can be an opportunity for the bands to admire each other’s work, and to recognise the skill and dedication which has been shown by the community to bring another Carnival to the streets. Whatever the reason, Galas are a wonderful evening and we have made a virtual Gala here. So put your glad rags on, sit back and enjoy some incredible performances and spectacular art!
