Plans are now progressing at a quickening pace as we bring together everything for what we intend to be the best carnival ever. We’ve even had a chance to test out the weather recently and with a few minor adjustments, that will be great.
New arena acts, side shows and entertainment has been booked along with the popular regular entertainers. Two arenas again, so plenty of fun on the Carnival field will be available to all ages.
Last year it was estimated that over 5,000 people came to the Carnival field. True figures are hard to find as we do not charge and so we can’t tell how many entrance tickets we would have sold. This year, as always, entrance is again FREE, NOTHING, ZILCH, to come onto the Carnival Field.
If you are a member of a charity or not for profit group, why not book your own stall for the Saturday, Sunday or even both? The cost to you, inside the marquee or with your own area outside is £15 per day and gives you a chance to raise funds and promote your group.
The theme for the road parade this year is MUSICALS so plenty of colours, dance and music to enthral the watching crowds. To take part in the road parade, just find your costume and come as anyone from a musical….then again the cost will be FREE.
It’s our Carnival, promoting our town and supporting our local charities. Please come and join us. There is still plenty of time. Charity groups, interest groups, team mates, work colleagues, family, friends or just individuals……you can ride, walk, dance….just take part. We would love to see you.
