Be inventive is the call from carnival bosses

Rob George 19th Jan, 2020   0

THE COUNTDOWN to this year’s Pershore Carnival has begun after organisers took the wraps off this year theme for the popular showpiece.

Inventors and Inventions will be the name of the game for the entertainment extravaganza on May 25 as the carnival takes to the town’s streets once again.

Creative youngsters are already being sought to put their names in the frame for success in the programme design competition.

Ideas for the cover of this year’s carnival programme can be submitted between February 8 and 22 at Pershore Library. The winner of the competition will see their design on the cover of the programme which is distributed throughout Pershore.

Entries for the carnival procession are now open. Entrants can be groups or individuals either on foot or motorised; ideally dressed in costumes relating to the theme.

Community groups who wish to take on a bigger challenge can choose to have a lorry float. This year there is a float grant available from Pershore Carnival of £50 to be used towards the cost of decorating the lorry float.

Winning entrants are presented with cups on the day and certificates are awarded to all who take part at the AGM.

As usual there will be a collection during the parade and organisers want to hear from local organisations and community groups who feel they should benefit from the town’s generosity.

Local businesses and community groups have also been encouraged to have a stall at the event and organisers have unveiled new prices to support groups of all sizes.

Interested parties have until April 30 to book a stall for Carnival Day in Abbey Park on Bank Holiday Monday.
