Weston-super-Mare Carnival Procession
OFFICIAL 50th ANNIVERSARY CARNIVAL GUIDE
WESTON-SUPER-MARE CARNIVAL IS…..
C is for carnival clubs, who spend 11 months working on their entries in secret. The beauty of carnival past, present and future. A smile is always just a click away
A is for annual event. Somerset has been commemorating Guy Fawkes attempt in 1605 to blow up The Houses of Parliament since 1881.
R is for route. Arrive early and bring a chair, to ensure a good viewing position. Most processions are over two miles long and can take up to two hours to pass any given point on route.
N is for November. The season of Bonfires, Fireworks and carnival! Put this November in your diary to visit Somerset for one of our spectacular carnivals.
I is for illuminated. Guy Fawkes carnivals are the worlds largest illuminated winter carnivals.
V is value for money! A street collection for local charities – please give generously. Programmes are produced for every procession and contain a wealth of information on the history of carnival, the entries and local clubs.
A is for All singing, All dancing. There are many different types of entries including action – packed feature carts, the waxwork like Tableaux, as well as individual and group walking entries.
L is for lights! Carnival carts can contain up to 25,000 light bulbs and can be up to 100ft long, 11 ft wide ans 17ft 6in high.
The Weston-super-Mare Carnival is the result of 12 months hard work, fund-raising and no doubt some heartache by the many carnival clubs. We have in excess of 100 entries, please help us by supporting OUR carnival and local charities. All profits from the carnival go to help and support local charitable organisations.
A massive thank you for your kind support 🙂
Each and every collector will wear an Official (colour TBC) sash. Each collecting tin or bucket will carry an Official Number with a (colour TBC) label across the tin or bucket. Official Collecting Floats will also appear in the procession. Please give your donations to Official Collectors ONLY.
Please give generously and help us exceed last year’s collection of £7,910
2019 programmes will be on sale for £1 each at various locations including Visit Weston at the Tropicana and McColls newsagents.
