1986 carnival memories can be found on the BBC Domesday Reloaded website.

The Domesday Project, which was launched by the BBC in 1986 to preserve a snapshot of life in the UK for future generations, has published two written memories by children in Somersham about the carnival. These have been made available online as part of the BBC’s Domesday Reloaded project.

Both look back on the 1985 Somersham Carnival, which had a theme of TV Programmes, and describe the activities
