Seaton royal party crowned
Resort prepares to launch East Devon’s illuminated carnival season with its big procession on Saturday
Organisers of Seaton Carnival say the programme has got off to a great start despite having to cancel Monday’s street fayre because of rain.
Secretary Marie Churchill said they were delighted with the success of the opening weekend – when even the weather did not stop people having fun.
She told The Herald: “I’m really looking forward to the events throughout the rest of the week and the main procession and I’m just hoping the weather will be perfect for next Saturday.
“I would like to thank everyone that has helped and supported the carnival so far. We do need collectors for the procession night so we can give more money to local charities and also help the carnival happen every year.

Heading up Saturday’s procession, which starts at 8pm, will be the royal party - carnival queen Annemarie Langworthy and the princesses Matilda Gaukroger and Jessica Hill.
