2018 Carnival Results

Firstly we apologise for the long delay in our 2018 procession caused by an entry breaking down and having to be moved off  the route before we could continue.

Our online survey is now closed after receiving 445 responses so thank you to all who took part, we will now analyse the responses and look to improve where necessary. Results of the lucky five winners of a 2018 DVD are Shannon – PL25; Euan – EX12; Sarah – EX15; Coral – TA6 & Kelly – SO30. Each will be contacted by email to supply a postal address in order that we can send out their DVD.

Our 2018 DVD and 2019 Calendar are both now available from the Carnival Centre, local carnival clubs and our online shop. Please note we will not be producing a Blu-Ray version of the 2018 procession due to low demand, but the standard DVD is available for advance order now, prices the same as 2017.
