Extinction Rebellion are touring a ‘Carnival for Life’ around the East of England, and will be bringing their “big, bold, colourful and beautiful” celebration to Luton on Friday the 22nd of July.
The carnival will start at Manor Road Park at 3pm and proceed towards George Street and the town hall, where there will be a samba band, animal costumes, ‘die-ins’, dancing and more until around 7pm. All are welcome.
“We want to celebrate all that we hold dear in life, the art, the music, the fun,” says XR East of England. “We also need to give the message of the suffering happening already around the world, giving a platform for their voices.”
The carnival in Luton is one of six planned in July, with others taking place in Norwich, Bury St Edmunds, Hertford, Colchester and Ipswich, in advance of wider Extinction Rebellion actions due to take place in September. More details on Facebook.
