Lime Kiln Carnival Club

Lime Kiln Carnival Club

Lime Kiln CC was formed in 1946 after World War 2 and is the oldest Bridgwater Carnival Club to still have its original name and headquarters. The headquarters is the Lime Kiln Inn and can be found on Salmon Parade by Cranleigh Gardens.

During the 1950s and 1960s the club was very successful in terms of trophies, but even when Lime Kiln have found trophies harder to come by, they have continued to enjoy themselves and have taken part in every annual carnival concert and carnival procession. The club did see a big decrease in members in 2005, which resulted in them constructing smaller entries. Thankfully the club has had a revival in recent years, and in 2018 moved back up to constructing a three piece, 100ft entry.

The club is known for its annual fete and car boot sale which takes place every July at Cranleigh Gardens, and also on Black Sunday (the name given to the day after Bridgwater Carnival) for its male members to wear shirts and club ties when visiting the pubs of the other town carnival clubs.

Currently Lime Kiln have approximately 40 full and associated members, 17 life members (who have completed 25 years of service or longer), as well as around 70 supporters who help where they can.

If you would like to get involved with the Lime Kiln Carnival Club, then please contact an existing club member, or visit their Facebook or Twitter accounts.
