Burwell Village Carnival

Burwell Carnival

Go to timetable

Can you believe that it is 12 months since we were almost washed away by the torrential rain and thunderstorms of 2014? We are all hoping that this year we will be blessed with dry, fine weather however if this is not to be then you all know that the show will go on!

On to this year and we have had another amazing response from local groups and businesses as the theme of Sci-fi, Fantasy and Adventure has really taken hold. Which float will take the honours this year? Could it be Star Wars or Star Trek? Possibly The Wizard of Oz or Dr Who? Maybe even Despicable Me or Minecraft? Or will Harry Potter leave us all spellbound?

Of course, there will be plenty of nervous energy as the finishing touches are put to each individual float, however winning is not everything! We thank you all for your hard work and dedication to Carnival. It really is a triumph for our village that we are able to produce a day like this which the whole community can enjoy and be a part of. As yet the Carnival King, Queen and their attendants have not been chosen so we are sure that there are some nervous children (and parents) waiting for the phone to ring! Whoever it may be, we look forward to seeing you lead the parade!

Once again, we are part of the Isle of Ely Arts Festival as well as being the launch pad for Burwell Festival. Why not take a look and see what’s happening over the next few days around the village by popping into the Festival tent, you may even become part of it!

This year we have an eclectic mix of entertainment throughout the day both off and on stage. There will be displays, music, street style entertainment, funfair rides and much more to keep you amused as you wander the field during the afternoon. Then as we enter the evening we have a mix of musical theatre followed by two excellent local bands to round off proceedings.

As always we wouldn’t be able to put Carnival on without the help of some generous commercial sponsors, those who provide the transport for the floats and those individuals who freely give up their time to run stalls, help as road marshals or collect money in the buckets along the parade route. We are indebted to you all!

So, tell your friends, family and colleagues that Burwell is the place to be on June 27th.

We look forward to seeing you all!
