Newbury Carnival date revealed
The date for this year's Newbury Carnival has been revealed.
The Carnival Parade will be on Sunday 16 July and will start at 2pm when the procession will wind through the Town Centre and finish in Park Way. The Carnival Fete will again be in Victoria Park.
The Carnival Parade in 2015 had 53 entries, including the wonderful John the Giant, the amazing Rampage Mas Band, the Harley Davidson Drive Through and the Reading Scottish Pipe Band. A record 10,000 people from the local community watched the parade. A large and very successful Carnival Fete was also held in Victoria Park, and live performances of music and dance were much enjoyed.
Sami Gabriel, Chair of the Newbury Carnival steering group said: “Looking forward to summer, is looking forward to Carnival! I’m so excited to be leading the great team to deliver for Newbury this great spectacular of sights and sounds that will excite and entertain one and all”.
