Transported is working with South Holland District Council on Spalding’s annual Pumpkin Festival. EMCCAN (East Midlands Caribbean Carnival Arts Network) are running several dance, lantern and costume making workshops with schools in the South Holland district in preparation for the parade. 

There are also open carnival dance workshops with EMCCAN at the South Holland Centre on Monday 25 September, Monday 2 October and Monday 9 October from 5 to 6.30pm for 11 to 16 year olds – £2 a session. 

On the day, carnival queens from the EMCCAN national tour will be joining us along with professional dancers and live musicians. 

The Spalding Pumpkin Festival is organised by South Holland District Council, is sponsored by David Bowman Pumpkins Ltd and supported by the Rotary Club of Spalding and Welland, Rotary Club of South Holland, Spalding Lions and Transported. For more information, visit
