Mardi Gras Preparation

The session on Wednesday 29th May 2019 session at the New Carnival Company Centre in Ryde was extremely successful. Two members have taken up the lead roles to help teach all the team the dance routine.

Some changes have been made to the base clothing and footwear of the costume. We are changing from white to brown and green to represent the costume theme of a tree from the forest woodlands.

Team Sessions

  • Wednesday 5th June 18:00 to 21:00
  • Wednesday 19th June 18:00 to 21:00  

Both sessions are at the Riverside Centre Medina Room. The Riverside Centre has free parking accessed by Medina Road if the bridge is still closed. 

 All 20 team members are asked to attend at least one of the Team Sessions to help make their individual costume and hand held feature. During these sessions the group will also learn the dance routine to be used on the day of the Mardi Gras Parade. 

The change in the base costume now has brown for the lower body and green for the upper body reflecting the colours of a tree.  

All team members are now asked to purchase the following and wear it on the day.

  • Footwear is to be any type of brown or white flat footwear such as trainers
  • Lower body is to be brown
    • Long shorts
    • Slim line trousers
    • Tracksuit bottoms
    • Jogging bottoms
    • Leggings.
