Luton Streets Festival is coming to St George’s Square on Saturday, June 21, from 12pm till 6pm.

There will be a variety of performances throughout the day, including the circus acrobatics group, Upswing, and stilt-walkers, the Jurassic Jockeys.

The UK Centre for Carnival Arts is the only dedicated National body representing Carnival arts throughout the United Kingdom.

Clary Salandy, associate artistic director, said: “If you think Luton International Carnival was great, Luton Streets Festival will be another fantastic day for all of the family, with loads of exciting things to do for children.

“There will be incredible acrobatics on the street, dinosaurs roaming and the opportunity to experience the Serengeti brought to life. Come and be part of the fun.”

Other activities on the day include circus skills, animal mask-making and street arts at the free drop-in workshops.

Visitors are encouraged to join in with the activities and dance all day long, a DJ will be playing music for the entirety.

Luton schools will be visiting the centre on Friday, June 20, to take part in workshops for £5 per child.

Activities available are, circus skills, African drumming, Capoeira Brazilian martial arts, Soca dancing and Bhangra dancing.

If you would like to book a group into one of the workshops, call Maggie Yarde on 01582 437138.
