Less than two weeks to go, and the Carnival crew are getting seriously excited (and keeping our fingers crossed for a bit of late summer sunshine!). Everything is lined up to bring the village nine hours of solid fun. Masons Funfair will be coming along as usual, joined this year by an Amazing Colour Maze for children to explore (and get lost in). There will also be a varied programme of free entertainments running all day.
For the peckish, we have more food variety than ever before. Alongside Miah's Indian restaurant and great tea, cakes and sandwiches from Caf'Active, the wonderful Texas Barbecue will be back by popular demand. We are also delighted to be welcoming a new local company - Vegivores -who are offering a fabulous range of savoury and sweet vegan foods. And - as always - you can quench your thirst in our licensed bar, run by Spencers Wood's very own Farriers Arms.
On the entertainment front we have live music from bands including the immensely talented BUGS ukulele group, playing well known hits from the 50s, 60s and 70s. And, if it's retail therapy you are after, we can promise something to suit all tastes and budgets, with more than 40 stalls selling everything from jewellery and woodwork through to soft toys and traditional sweets (and everything in between).
Come along, bring the family, and join in the best event of the year (OK, we are biased, but we must be in the running!). Entry is free, but it would be great if you could bring a can or packet of food to donate to our local food bank, who will be coming along on the day.
