We’re delighted to welcome back Shepton Mallet Carnival tonight (16th November) after two long years away. The carnival parade will feature over 100 entries, these range from single masqueraders dancing in the streets to 100ft illuminated carnival carts, and all pulled by decorated tractors.

Carnival ‘carts’ are built and designed by carnival clubs around the county. Taking months to complete, by many dedicated and passionate people and can cost thousands of pounds to design and make. While the events are free to attend, they are designed to raise money for local charities and community groups. Please show your support for their efforts and give generously.

The procession starts at 19:30 on Cannards Grave Road, for more information on road closures and parking, please visit: www.sheptonmalletcarnival.org.uk
