About Glorious Backstage Arts

Glorious Backstage Arts is a voluntary sector organisation based in the north London Borough of Islington. Established in 1998 by Angela Slocumbe. GBA evolved in response to a lack of local youth provision for teenagers and young people in the area.

Because playing Mas at the Notting Hill Carnival is a ‘valid’ ageless activity, and nothing similar already existed locally the idea of creating a local Carnival Mas Camp to which anyone both in and out of the borough might feel comfortable joining took shape. Glorious Backstage Arts runs carnival themed workshops (8 – 16’s) and provides voluntary work experience for (17 – 25’s).
