Carnival Court Selection
By leightoncarnival, Feb 4 2020 10:31AM
The Court selected at the disco in March 2019, Senior Princess Maisie, Princesses Maya and Thea, were on the Royalty float in the Carnival Procession and were in the arena for the prize giving. They are pictured here with Julien and Finnoula from Constantines Salon, sponsors of the 2019 Carnival Court.
The Princesses handed out the cheques when the Carnival profits were distributed to over forty groups and organisation. The Carnival Court was invited to take part in the switch-on ceremony for the Town Christmas lights.
At the selection disco, hosted by Strawberry Fieldz, we are looking to select a Carnival Court of three or four youngsters (dependant on entries). They will be in school years 5,6,7 or 8.
Anyone in these age groups can enter if they attend a Leighton-Linslade school or have a parental/guardian address in Leighton Buzzard or Linslade.
To enter, just click on the poster above to download an entry form It is important that it is signed by a parent/guardian.
Each member of the Court chosen on 15th March will be asked to nominate a group or charity who will receive a £50 donation from Leighton-Linslade Carnival at the presentation night in October.

Following the cancellation of Carnival due to the Covid pandemic, we created a separate Facebook page for the virtual Carnival Leighton-Linslade Virtual Carnival 2020.
Please vist this page to see the wonderful videos that made up the virtual arena, some from before lockdown, some during lockdown and some as we were slowly emerging from lockdown.
