Who We Are

Sheffield Carnival

We are Supreme Origins a not-for-profit group whose aim is to promote lasting culture, heritage awareness and opportunities for diverse communities to come together and celebrate their differences through the means of carnival.

Supreme Origins was formed when a few friends whose lasting friendships were built on their shared involvement and experiences of previous Sheffield Carnivals, which ran throughout the 1980’s to 1990’s.

The group perceive that cultural diversity is becoming more fragmented in the city, although cultural diversity is growing, and want to create and coordinate a carnival event that could bring people together, to share and celebrate the many cultures in Sheffield.
Most of our group have fond memories of Sheffield Carnival which took place during the 1980’s but sadly came to an end by the early 1990’s. You can find out more from the Sheffield carnival history page.

Supreme Origins has been set up as a Company Limited by Guarantee and we offer our time on a voluntary basis, we are keen to recruit more volunteers to assist us in achieving our goals.
