Just want to thank all the artists and musicians who have held the dates and stayed with us while we were busy fundraising- contracts will be with you very soon.

Thanks too to all the businesses who pledged support and apologies in advance for chasing the cash now.

If you aren’t already on the team you can still pitch in and make a difference- help us get the posters out, help us finish the parade pieces, volunteer to help Marshall the parade, get the flags up, decorate the event tents, staff the info stall, come along to the big local carnival club costume sessions starting next Saturday and make a costume, be in the parade, take the survey, buy tickets, sell raffle tickets for us … we have a huge list of asks so just ask! You don’t need to do anything scary just join in
