28th June ~ 12noon - 10:30pm
Welcome to Burwell Carnival 2014…
It doesn’t seem like a year ago since Frazer & Ellen were Burwell Carnival King & Queen for 2013, along with their attendants, Matilda & Ned. Pictured on the cover, they led out the largest parade that we’ve ever had through the village. As this programme goes to print this year’s King, Queen and attendants are about to be chosen, based upon a picture they’ve drawn related to this year‘s parade theme of ‘Ads, Products & Businesses‘.
We’ve got a diverse range of floats ranging from local to internationally known products and/or businesses. So we’re intrigued to see what they look like and how they blend together… or clash. Perhaps a fight between M&Ms and Smarties will break out!
Do come along to find out if Montessorri win the 1st prize parade trophy for the third year running and if BurwellPrint again walk away with the adult group prize. Or will it be someone else’s turn this year?!
We’re delighted to again be part of the Isle of Ely Arts Festival and be kicking-off the inaugural Burwell Festival Week. With this in mind we’ve packed our programme with local displays and music, which will hopefully show how much talent lies within the village and surrounding area. At ~1.30pm look to the skies as, weather permitting, we’ve arranged a fly past of a Spitfire from the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, being part of Armed Forces Day.
So, much to celebrate and be entertained by. Do get involved or come along and bring your friends to this free family-friendly event!
The committee would again like to thank everyone that gets involved in Carnival, including all of you who build floats and take part in the spectacular parade each year. It’s one of the best in the region and we should be rightly proud of it! Thanks also to all the groups that run stalls and activities and to all our commercial sponsors. We are indebted to you all in supporting Burwell Carnivals ‘Family Fun‘ Day & Evening.
Long may it continue…
