There’s STILL time to be part of this year’s Carnival!

As we approach the end of June, we have less than 2 weeks to go before the 30 year Anniversary of the Astwood Bank Carnival on 8th July.

We are planning for a fantastic celebration of Carnival and we want you to be part of it!There is an open invite for entering the Procession, you can enter a walking Group, Float, Unusual Vehicle or Decorated Trailer in the Carnival Procession. You have the opportunity this year to use ANY of the previous themes from the 30 years of Carnival so come and join us for a fantastic day out, along with most of our village and the surrounding areas in attendance.

Do you have an unusual vehicle which you want to Parade through the village, does your group want to enter a Float, Trailer or Walking Group, get in touch as we would love to see you in the parade, then join us!

The open Theme gives you limitless options to parade your group, business, association or local sports club and more important, to have fun and be part of the famous Astwood Bank Carnival.
