Carnival 2012 - Kings & QueensThe time for Carnival cometh once more.

The theme for Carnival 2012 is "Kings and Queens". We are not just talking Elizabeth, Edward, Victoria, George, Henry and Ethelred; there is Cleopatra, Martin Luther …  not to mention Freddie Mercury!  Use your imagination for the theme; decorate your house on the Carnival route and join the procession in costume to make this a Carnival to remember in Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee year.

The Carnival will also include some superb Olympic-themed events for children from 2 to 92 in the main arena on The Green.

Organisation for the Carnival is underway so is there any way you can help to make this a year to remember?

  • VERY IMPORTANT: Selection of the Carnival Queen and Princesses will take place in April. Dresses for the Queen and Princesses are very difficult to find this year. Can anyone help with any bridesmaid or similar "fancy" dresses that would be suitable for our stunning young ladies? All help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
  • Local Groups: Do you run any group in the Villages that would like to operate a float this year? Perhaps you do not live in the village but operate your events here and would like to take part? All floats are welcome!
  • Transport: Can you help with transport in any form; flatbed lorry, open truck or van or anything that could provide transport for the procession?
  • Advertising: Any business that would like to advertise in the Carnival program should have their requests in by mid-April. This is an event that draws thousands of people for the local area so don't miss out.
  • Can you provide any help to the carnival?
    • Prizes, of any sort, for the various raffle and tombola stalls.
    • Items for the silent auction.
    • Can YOU provide help on the day of the carnival at any of the many charity stalls, even for a few hours?

My Lords and Ladies the time is coming; prepare yourselves for a "right Regal Carnival" in 2012.
