Carnival theme revealed
This year Newbury Carnival organisers asked for help from the local community to choose the hotly awaited Carnival 2017 theme.
The winning theme was chosen by the Carnival Committee as ‘Myths and Legends.’
Newbury Carnival is on Sunday July 16th with the Carnival Fete from 12 until 6pm in Victoria Park.
The Carnival Parade will start at 2pm from Pound Street and wind through Bartholomew Street, and Northbrook Street to the Clock Tower and Victoria Park.
Recent entries for the Carnival Parade include the Harley Davidson’s Drive Through, Sue Ryder Charles Clore Unit, Razzamataz Theatre School, Interakt Dance School and Community, Kidstrument Musical Instrument Tuition, Thames Valley Kings Wheelchair Basketball Club, Abacus Day Nursery and Eddie Catz.
Ruth Walker, Project Manager for Newbury Carnival 2017 said: “We had lots of fun deciding on the parade theme from the brilliant ideas given to us. We hope that everyone will feel inspired to enter with all sorts of great ideas around the theme of ‘Myths and Legends’, which in addition to the traditional meaning, may include someone or something that can be described as a legend too.”
