Organisers of the St Pauls Carnival have announced that the event will not return in full until 2025.
Former Ujima Radio Presenter and now BBC Journalist Dawn Limbu reports for BBC England:
This year, over 100,000 people celebrated the return of the first full carnival since before the pandemic.
Despite the success, organisers said they will have to scale back the event to one every two years.
It said this is due to funding challenges, with organisers having to raise over £250,000 to run the event.
Organisers said that next year will be marked with community led ‘Back-a-Yard’ gatherings – a traditional Jamaican phrase which means “back at home”.
The money to fund the carnival currently comes from grant funding from organisations such as the Arts Council and Bristol City Council, alongside money that the organisation has raised itself.
