Carnival Queen


by Tiannah Viechweg 

26th & 27th November 




Part of the John Thaw Initiative 

Curated by Blakctress UK 



Carnival Queen tells the story of political activist Claudia Jones and how she came to bring carnival to British soils through her transatlantic experience of the black struggle. Her story is bought to life by the flamboyant characters from a traditional Trinidadian Carnival Mas: The Devil, Minstrel Bands, Dame Lorraine and Jab Jab Molassies.


Written, Produced, Performed and Directed by Tiannah Viechweg
