This year marked the 50th anniversary and return of St Pauls Carnival! RISE were absolutely delighted to be a part of the event and we worked so so hard to make it amazing. We had a troupe of over 80 people spanning from as young as 12 to adults - all with fantastic routines to perform and costumes to flaunt! It was a huge success and a joy to take part it!
