We are collecting 500 portraits and we need YOU!

Pop in to our travelling portrait studio and have your photo taken wearing one of our specially commissioned carnival headpieces, in celebration of Leeds West Indian Carnival's 50th Birthday.

This is your chance to dress up and get a free (yes free!) professional portrait taken by photographer extraordinaire, Lizzie Coombes. Some of the best Carnival artists in the country have created stunning new headpieces full of the glitz, colour and exuberance of Carnival.

Come and wear a work of art and get Carnival Happy!

Headpieces have been created by designers Hughbon Condor, Renata Gordon, Lorina Gumbs and Melissa Simon-Hartman.

I'm Carnival Happy is a Leeds Inspired Commission in partnership with Leeds West Indian Carnival. For details of all the 50th anniversary events visit
