Pentathlon Carnival Club (Associate)

Pentathlon Carnival Club

Pentathlon Carnival Club was formed in 1971, and it’s first ever entry Verdi’s Grand Opera Aida took first place at Bridgwater Carnival in the open tableaux class. This was an amazing achievement for a new club, and it would be easier to state the years in which the club didn’t win, such has been the  impact the club has had on the top prizes over the years.

The club went on to take the top spot at Bridgwater Carnival in its second year in 1972 and also went on to win the county cup for the first time with Ceremonial Procession of India.

The 1980s were a prolific time for the club, winning the county cup five times. The club also has the distinction of being the first club to win the county cup three years in succession – 1987 (Cossacks Display of the Tsar), 1988 (Shogun – Lord of the Samurai), and 1989 (Cleopatra’s Escape from Egypt).

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, even when not winning the open tableaux class in Bridgwater or the county cup, the club rarely did worse then second place.

The clubs is currently based at The Walnut Tree in North Petherton.
