The Carnival Court for 2019 has been selected. At the selection disco held at the Royal British Legion Club Princess Maya (L), Senior Princess Maisie (C) and Princess Thea (R) were chosen.


Judges Elliot Weedon (PCSO), Yasmin Edgeworth (Newport Pagnell Carnival Queen), Emma James (2009 Carnival Princess) and Tracey Quinn (TACTIC Centre) had a difficult job deciding who was to be in the 2019 Court.


The Princesses were given their sashes and tiaras by Yasmin. They each had a balloon donated by Perfect Parties, a bouquet from EGP Printers and a goodie bag with a selection of gifts. They will be on the lead float in the Carnival procession on 13th July.


The disco was hosted by Strawberry Fieldz and we would like to thank them and the RBL Club for the use of the Club again.

Carnival was selected to be one of the nominated groups for support from the Bags of Help funding during November and December. We have been advised that we are to receive £1000 from the scheme.


This is to be used to secure storage accomodation for our Carnival equipment. We have some bulky items - including our arena fencing - and need to store them safely. We also were hoping to update our signage, but may need to seek additional funding for this.


For these type of purchases we try to avoid using Carnival profits, these are raised to support local groups. We look for sponsorship or donations for our equipment..

The ballot for the theme for Carnival 2019 has now closed.


The results are in the table to the right, and the Carnival Committee would like to thank everyone who suggested themes and who voted. The winning theme of Music Through the Ages was suggested by the Friends Within (Mencap) group.


We look forward to a varied, and loud, procession on 13th July 2019!
