Katumba Halloween Parade 2019

Katumba, the largest drum ensemble in the North West, is preparing to bewitch your senses with an all-immersive spectacle, a hybrid of visual performance, theatre & music! This year’s theme “From Darkness to Light: Where the Worlds Meet” has taken artistic steer from ancient traditions such as Gaelic Samhain, Indian Diwali and Brazilian Dia de Finados. The parade will create a truly magical environment resplendent with astounding puppetry, dazzling light effects and tribal drumming.

Having secured funding from the Arts Council for the first time for this unique event, this parade will be the biggest to date, with more artists contributing and more musicians taking part than ever before. Having played a part in clinching the funding, we’re on board in 2019 to assist with the development and event management of the parade.

The parade starts at 8pm at the corner of Bold St. and Colquitt St. in front of Soul Café. Join us for this free spectacle, all are welcome!

We’re inviting the community to take part this year: sign up for our prop- and lantern-making workshops on 20th October here
