Astwood Bank Carnival is where it all began for us. The Carnival has been a community tradition for over 30 years now, and has grown year on year.

***** UPDATE FOR 2021 ****


Our committee met last week and after much consideration we have taken the decision that it is not possible to hold a procession this year. We are disappointed we have had to make this decision but It is due to a number of factors. The ongoing pandemic continues to cause uncertainty. We also realise that the timing of the event on 11th September will mean that it will be extremely difficult for entrants to organise floats in the available time. We have also been unable to book any bands due to their own planning difficulties. HOWEVER, we are still planning a carnival event on the 11th September 2021, 12 – 4pm and it will be held in the playing field at Ridgeway School. It will take the form of the field event usually held at S E Davis. There will be lots going on including stalls, entertainment and plenty of activities for all the family, more information will be advertised as plans progress. We do hope you will be able to come along. Thank you for your ongoing support and we hope to see you on 11th September. We cannot wait to get back together and Celebrate.

More details will follow in the weeks ahead.
