A free mini-bus service will run between the two venues.

Full details of all events can be found in the carnival programme, which is on sale at various locations in the town.

Helpers are always needed, this can be helping with the Carnival Market, either during Carnival Week sorting items as they are received or on Carnival Day itself, selling the goods or helping steward the procession on carnival night or clearing up on the Sunday after the procession.

If you can spare even half an hour, the committee would love to hear from you.
