Seachange Arts, revive their Mardi Gras event this week (Tuesday, February 28) at the Drill House on York Road.
The organisation behind the Out There Festival staged a Mardi Gras event on King Street in 2010 and 2011 and bring the event back as part of their Drill House programme this month.
'Our Mardi Gras is an international celebration with food, family activities and plenty of fun,' said Joe Mackintosh of Seachange.
'Mardi Gras is a great French tradition while in Britain it is known Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day. We'll be mixing the ingredients of the two and taking it indoors at The Drill House.'
Artist and maker, Claire Antell will be running a creative carnival mask-making workshop.
Seachange's Mardi Gras takes place at The Drill House from 3.30pm on Tuesday, February 28. Tickets are £2 (£5 family of four) available on the door or in advance at www.seachangearts.org.uk
