The Portsmouth Town Council has called together stakeholders within the town, to form the “Portsmouth Festivals Committee”, and tasked it with the management of festivals and events including Carnival, in the town of Portsmouth.
The Portsmouth Festivals Committee will be a partnership between the council and the community, with officials of the organization coming from the Town Council and the wider community.
An interim executive was elected and mandated with the task of planning an ambitious schedule of events for Carnival 2017. Elected to serve on the organization are President - Ashton Riviere; Co Events Coordinators - Mr. Edrington James and Girda Bedminster; Treasurer - Cynthia Wenham; and Public Relations Officer Roslyn Prince.
