Cleethorpes Carnival | Heritage Project
People all across Lincolnshire and beyond fondly remember the Cleethorpes Carnival – whether you danced on one of the floats or watched from the side.
Funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, we were commissioned to put together five documentaries exploring festivals and events in the seaside town of Cleethorpes throughout the years. For the first in this series we wanted to create a nostalgic and informative video that looks at the recently cancelled Cleethorpes Carnival, combining archival footage, images, interview and music to follow the history of the carnival.
The video has received a very positive response on social media – particularly in Facebook pages dedicated to sharing memories of Cleethorpes' past – and was widely shared and commented on.
