The venue was fantastic! Such a great atmosphere and everyone enjoyed the event, we had very positive feedback! Personally, I really enjoyed being in a creative environment!  The steel drum music provided was amazing.

The team at UK Centre for Carnival Arts were a pleasure to deal with. They were very helpful and were flexible when aspects of the event changed. The team were professional and the Centre was all set up and ready to go, with a member of staff on site to help ahead of the event. The catering was excellent and went down a treat with the guests. I wouldn’t hesitate to hold another event at the Centre again and would highly recommend holding an event there.

In going into the first Castlefest outside of the Castle Tavern back garden environment, we knew it was going to be a big task and we needed all the help we could get. Working with the UKCCA we were amazed at the level of support we got from the booking team, technical team and facilities team. Kerrie helped us in making sure we covered all the legal and booking bases, Greg and Carl ensured the facilities were all ready and tip top for us and the Janet and Jitty were amazing on the days of the event helping us with any issues on site and ensuring the bars were running and were facilitating our customers when it was needed. We cannot wait to work with them again on Castlefest 2019.

We bought Twice as Nice to The UK Carnival Arts Centre on Saturday 27th October. 

The Carnival Arts  event staff have been brilliant from start to finish. In the run up to the event nothing was to much hassle and I was able to contact them at all times. 

The Event itself could not have gone any better. The Support from Kerrie Duggan Events and Bar Manger went above and beyond the call of duty. The bar, tech and security staff were excellent and delivered great service all night. 

The Carnival Arts Centre is one of the best venues that Luton has ever seen. 

I'm looking forward to going back to this venue and holding more events with this team. 

Gabrielle McKeown, Twice As Nice 

It was an absolute pleasure working with The Uk Centre for Carnival Arts on our  Halloween Ball.

The whole team went above and beyond to ensure we had everything in place for us to run a safe and successful event. We’ve had some great feedback from our customers on how friendly the security staff were and how speedy bar service was. Looking forward to working with the team again soon.

UKCCA were great hosts for my dance platform 1Step and the venue provided a creative and open environment for all. The staff were welcoming and went above and beyond in providing service for me for the day. A great venue for the local arts community.

Everything was PERFECT on Saturday! I would definitely recommend Hiring from UK carnival arts centre. The service is impeccable from greeting to assisting with complementary hot drinks and all the way through the day also adding a little touch of creativity with a personalisation booking room notice. Not to forget they offer parking onsite too! Thank you so much for your assistance with absolutely everything. I would definitely recommend and will be booking again in a few months for another photoshoot!
