Acton Carnival on film

Free Screening on Sunday 2nd July 14.00 - 16.00 Hosted by ActOne Cinema

Summer is here & we are getting ready for the Acton Carnival Emerald celebrations on the 8th of July.

To get in the festive spirit, Acton Carnival and ARTification have organised the Pan & Mas Films screening of Carnival’s past on Sunday, 2nd of July between 2 and 4pm. Book your free ticket here.

Acton Carnival, is held every year in July, and is a vibrant, grassroots community festival. The high-quality music, dance, performance, and activities found at the carnival, plus the great food, are hugely enjoyed by West Londoners of all ages and cultures.

The procession travels down Acton High Street and makes it way to Acton Park, joined by various carnival bands and community groups. At 2003’s inaugural event, 400 people from 20 groups took part in a colourful procession that brought the streets of Acton to life. By 2011 the procession had grown to involve 25 groups and 600 people, including contributions from the Caribbean, Eastern European, Chinese, Asian, the Middle Eastern, Latin American and African community groups. In 2020 and 2021 ARTification live- streamed Acton Carnival performances to more than 20,000 people across the world. Last year saw the return of the live event in Acton Park which attracted over 4000 people. Join us for our 20th year with the XX Emerald Celebrations.

Acton Carnival is produced by ARTification and is rooted in the local community - ARTification (formerly called Acton Arts Forum) was established in 2003 to support the development of the communities of Acton, build capacity and promote participation, social capital and community cohesion, with an emphasis on community arts.
