Every Year our Carnival Procession is lead by our Carnival Royalty.
Carnival Royalty is made up of our Queen, Prince/Princess and Rosebud.
Queen Applicants need to be aged 12-18 years old and live within 10 miles of Astwood Bank.
Rosebud applicants must be aged between 5 – 7, and Prince/Princess between 7 – 11 and either attend a school in Astwood Bank, attend a club within Astwood Bank or be a resident in the village.
The new Astwood Bank Carnival Royalty will lead the procession around the village on Carnival Day as well as attend other events throughout the year.
Amongst other duties the Queen will hand out the grants to organisations who successfully apply for funding from the ‘Non-Profit Grants’ scheme, supported by Astwood Bank Community Group.
