The Carnival Queen, Princess and attendants for this year's Carnival have been chosen! Leading the Procession as Carnival Queen will be 12 year old Charlotte Nilsen, with Carnival Princess Shauna Lugsden, aged 9. Their attendants will be Elise Christie (11) and Rebecca Riley (9). The girls will be looking wonderful, in dresses supplied by Confetti Bridalwear in Tring, their hair styled by High Street Hair and carrying beautiful flower posies from Buds of May.

Carnival Queen, Princess & Attendants 2009

Choosing the Carnival Queen takes us one step further to this year's Carnival on Saturday 4th July. But there's still plenty of other preparation going on! The entertainments this year look better than ever - as well as the legendary worm charming contest, this year's entertainment has a musical flavour. Come along and see the 'Best of Bands' challenge - several bands will be busking in our marquee; the one that raises the most money will then be invited to play in the Carnival arena. You can also enjoy:

  • a performance by the Manshead School Band,
  • Magic Dave, who'll be presenting two shows
  • a display by Jazzercise
  • Animal Antics - plenty of farmyard animals for youngsters to enjoy
  • a demonstration by Maggie Stern of Spinners and Dyers.

Perennial favourites the Dog Show and the Classic Vehicle display will be back, as will that Carnival favourite Clarabelle the Cow - see if you can guess the square of the Green where she'll drop her pat! For radio amateurs, visit the Radio Hams, to see how it's done! For everyone there is free admission, free entertainment and free parking!

We still need offers of help for the day itself. Could you man a stall for a few hours, join the heavy gang at the beginning or end of the day or could you make cakes for the tea tent or the cake stall?

For any of the above please leave a message on our website -

We're all looking forward to 4th July - hope to see you there!
