To Set the Record Straight

In an earlier post about Poison UK I mentioned the fact that on their website it stated that a section would be designed by legendary Peter Minshall. Well, following several comments that were made on that post, Ansel Wong of Paddington Arts ELIMU left this bit of information concerning Minshall's involvement in Notthing Hill Carnival 2007:

Four Mas Bands - Paddington Arts ELIMU, Poison UK, Dragons and The Lighthouse Players - together with the London College of Fashion, The Victoria & Albert Museum, Kingston Upon Thames Carnival and The Thames Festival have commissioned Minshall to design, make and stage a Mas Production at a number of events and venues in London from August to September 2007. This is year one of a four year project leading up to the 2012 Olympics when we hope that Mas will be given some exposure to be represented at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics. There will be 2000 Mas players at the highlight of the event in Hyde Park on Carnival Sunday. Then each of the four bands will display their Mas on Carnival Monday on the streets of Notting Hill.

It is a challenging and exciting project that was planned since 2005 when the Arts Council gave a R&D grant to plan this event. This is the fruits of this planning. If it happens, it will be something to behold as Minshall when he visited London two weeks ago to meet the Mas Bands excited us all with his ideas and plans.
