Details

Join us in the Quarry as a company of professional actors and community participants come together to share and celebrate the story of the birth of _Leeds West Indian Carnival_.

Woven from first hand accounts collected by Colin Grant, curated by Burt Caesar and directed by Associate Director Amy Leach; _The Queen of Chapeltown_ follows the stories of those who campaigned, sewed and danced their way to the first carnival in 1967 and of one woman’s journey to become a Carnival Queen.
