Newbury Town Centre




Hooray – It’s Newbury Carnival 2017! 
This year Newbury Carnival will be on Sunday 16th July.  The Carnival Parade will start at 2pm and the procession will wind through the Town Centre and finish in Park Way.  The Carnival Fete will again be in Victoria Park. 
Jenny Unthank from Stagecoach Newbury and Marlborough is planning an entry and said, “We absolutely had a ball last time - my parents loved it as much as the children did! It is lovely to do something that all the children can do at any age and doesn’t cost anything. The atmosphere was amazing and we loved it.”
The Carnival Parade in 2015 had fifty three entries, including the wonderful John the Giant, the amazing Rampage Mas Band, the Harley Davidson Drive Through, The  Reading Scottish Pipe Band and importantly, many local schools, charities, businesses and community groups.  A record 10,000 people from the local community watched the parade. A large and very successful Carnival Fete was also held in Victoria Park, and live performances of music and dance were much enjoyed.
Sami Gabriel, Chair of the Newbury Carnival steering group said, “Looking forward to summer is looking forward to Carnival!  I'm so excited to be leading the great team to deliver for Newbury this great spectacular of sights and sounds that will excite and entertain one and all”.
There is no charge to enter the Carnival Parade, and walking and dancing entries are as welcome and as effective as the decorated floats. Prizes will be awarded for the best entries in several categories.
Please join us and enjoy a wonderful day free day out with your local community.
