Watton Carnival is all set to take place on Sunday 3rd September with the venue being Watton High Street with free admission. This year’s theme is ‘Enchanted’ leaving lots of scope for your imaginations to run riot and to come up with some astonishing costumes.
Keeping with tradition, we will once again be opening the carnival at 11.00am with a special open-air morning service led by Watton Pentecostal Church. Followed at 11.45 with the official opening ceremony by the Town Mayor Stan Hebborn.
This year’s procession starts at 1.00pm headed by The Phoenix Pipes & Drums followed in close pursuit by the Princesses, Princes, and Hollie Stanley a finalist in Little Miss Teen Great Britain. Thanks to Wayland Executive Cars and Breckland Funeral Service for providing luxury transportation and The Village Florist for supplying the posies, not forgetting A-Plant lux for their continued support of arranging the street closure and diversion. Keep a close lookout for ‘Hareton’ our mascot, whom I am sure will be making an appearance.
There will be live music and entertainment on stage throughout the course of the day and back by popular demand ‘Badge’ the good time rock and roll band who will have you rocking in the streets. Also featuring Invidia Voices a rock and soul choir along with local dance group Young Stars School of Dance.
Sincere thanks to all our sponsors, Adcock’s Electrical, Watton Edward News, Eastwood Catering, Trell Contractors, The Kings Arms, Abel Homes, Cranswick Country Foods, Wayland Chambers of Commerce and Watton Town Council, due to the generous support we will once again be able to put on free attractions.
