Default Carnival 2012

Special Announcement

After having Titan at last year Carnival, the Carnival Committee would like to announce that the main attraction at this year's carnival will be The Tigers parachute display team which are from The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment's Parachute display team - "The Tigers" - Dropping into the arena, smoke trailing, flags flying, performing several amazing formations both in the air and under the parachute. This is one display that you wont want to miss !
We want this year's carnival to be the best ever and we are trying our best to provide something for everybody, the medieval theme will continue on the field with side shows from "The Tom Show" who will pass his whole body through a tennis racket, sword swallowing and the bed of nails, plus the Medieval Foot Tournament with knights, squires, ladies, tents, combat, arm and dress the knight.
Also why not pay a visit to the Mobile Mini Zoo where you can hold a Mexican Red Knee Tarantula or Corn snake and many more if your feeling brave !
Add to this the marching bands, stalls, the dog show and the children's rides and I think you will agree that you wont want to miss the Wirksworth Carnival this year ?
If your on facebook then Please invite as many friends and share this event, just search "Wirksworth Carnival 2012" and you will be kept up to date with all the events that are still to be announced !

To let the carnival parade run smoothly we require 20 marshalls for the safety of those taking part in this year's parade ? If you can help for 1 hour on carnival day to ensure the parade goes off without a hitch please contact me via email :- chrisb1965@btinternet.com

A great venue, Chris, and three not-to-be-missed gigs... but are you serious about the abseiling? Do I bring my own rope?

Default Could this be the last ?

Very stressful time for Wirksworth Carnival committee who have worked on this year's carnival for the last 12 months and it is thanks to us that there is a carnival for everyone to enjoy, unless more people join the committee this year's carnival will be the last !
Up to 5 current committee member's will be leaving and try as we might it is impossible to run a carnival with 4 members that will be left so we could be seeing the end of the Wirksworth Carnival this year !

Without more help this will be the last carnival unless more people join the committee. If you are willing to join or what more information please email welldressing@btinternet.com

Wirksworth people it is really up to you what happens next ?
