Carnival Countdown

Carnival Countdown has begun

By the time you are reading this there will only be about three months before this year’s Carnival on Saturday July 8th, and what a Carnival it promises to be. We are celebrating 30 years of Astwood Bank Carnival and so the floats can choose from any theme over the past 30 years!

The Carnival Committee are busy organising and booking activities for everyone to enjoy, and over the coming weeks we’ll tell you more about what to expect on the day, just keep an eye on the website or follow us on twitter or facebook.

What we can announce today though is we have booked an amazing act for the main arena, The Wye Valley Axemen. If you haven’t seen them perform before you are in for a real treat, and if you have seen them before, you know you need to be on that Carnival field. The Wye Valley Axemen displays contain speed, skill and accuracy using razor sharp axes and saws as they bring to life the lumber jack techniques of years gone by.


Bookings for stall holdings are going very well, and as we announce more and more about the day we’re expecting a bumper number of stalls. If you want to secure your place please visit the website to complete a stall booking form.
