Make sure you don’t miss the parade at the start of the day whatever you do. Over 400 people took part in 2016, with trailers, bikes, mobility scooters, you name it! The theme for 2017 is “A Movie of Hanwell”. We are already hard at work on this year’s trailers and costumes. The UFO Steelband will bring some Caribbean rhythm, and loads more music from Znatch and the ever popular Hanwell Ukes
Once again we will be in both the front and the rear sections, stalls, fairground and children’s attractions in the front, the main stages and other events in the rear. We are booking all the acts as we speak so keep watching for details.
There is plenty to keep the young and the young-at-heart entertained – a fairground, inflatables and our ever- popular animal zone.
If shopping is more your thing, then bring plenty of cash. As well as scores of charity and trade stalls, the Craft Tent will be showcasing goods from some very talented arts and crafts people,
Don’t forget to pick up a programme, which will be available at the beginning of June in local bars, restaurants and clubs . It is the essential guide for the day with a map (always handy) and oodles of info about the day and what’s happening where and at what time.
It’s hungry work walking round carnival and, as ever, there’ll be food and drink on offer too.
