Exciting programme planned for Carnival Day on 26th August

The Carnival procession will leave Brook Way Activity Centre at 11am

B

radley Stoke Carnival takes place this year on Saturday 26th August, from 11am to 6pm, on Jubilee Green, Savages Wood Road BS32 8HL. The aim of the carnival has always been to bring the community of our town together for a great day of family entertainment that doesn’t have to cost the earth. A new feature this year is the ‘community zone’, which has been sponsored by the Willow Brook Centre. It will feature a ‘Total Wipeout’, ‘Gladiator Sticks’ and a giant 60-foot assault course suitable for both children and the not-so-young! These will all be available to use free of charge, although a donation bucket for the mayor’s charities will be available should you like to make a small voluntary donation. Punch and Judy shows will run at intervals throughout the afternoon as they have previously been very popular amongst all age groups, including adults! Star Wars themed stilt walkers will join in the parade and will be walking around the carnival field during the afternoon for some awesome selfie opportunities! The live music line up is family-friendly and will hopefully please all age groups with some great tribute acts including Neil Diamond, Robbie Williams and

Elvis, as well as local performers such as the winner of last year’s Bradley Stoke Has Music talent competition. Also taking place in front of the stage area will be an amazing fire show featuring a professional three-person team of fire breathers performing an awesome routine. There will also be a performance from the City of Bristol Pipes and Drums once they have arrived at the Jubilee Field at the head of this year’s silver-themed carnival parade.

Five hours of live music on stage

A variety of community and commercial stalls will be situated around the field for you to enjoy as well as a vintage games area. A licensed bar will also be available throughout the afternoon. No car parking is available on site or on Savages Wood Road, however parking is available at the Willow Brook Centre and the usual four-hour limit has kindly been removed on Saturday 26th August only.
