Spencers Wood Carnival Blog
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.
Hello Carnival fans! The 2017 Spencers Wood Carnival will take place on Saturday 16th September. After a well-earned rest over the winter, Liz and Debbie have their planning hats on, and are now ready to accept bookings from stallholders, catering outlets and attractions providers, to make this the best one ever. Please download the paperwork via the "getting involved" page, and send it in with your fee to secure your place. We are waiting to hear from you!
Please note - we already have a funfair, inflatables and bar lined up, so will not be taking on anything which overlaps with those.
Despite the torrential rain last night, the field is almost dry and everything is looking good. The big wheel and the waltzer are almost ready. And most importantly of all, the beer tent is up! The forecast is fine, so it's all systems go for the morning. See you there!
