Do you remember the first Somersham Carnival? If so, we need your help!
We’re looking for your photos, videos and memories of previous Somersham Carnivals to add to our online gallery here on this site and also to add to our Facebook Page.
Hopefully we can build up a great collection of material showing the carnival through the years. You never know, it may even help re-connect you with long-lost residents!
Share your memories and photos by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, if you don’t have the images electronically, just send us an email and we can probably sort something out with you.
Please only send images that you know you own the copyright for (remember: the photographer owns the copyright, not the person in the photo!).

Hello Somersham Carnival-goers …..WELCOME TO OUR NEW WEBSITE!!
Our theme this year, to tie in with a certain other spectacular UK event, is “GOING FOR GOLD”!!
For all you budding “Olympians” this is your chance to look the part – anything goes! – from the original Olympians (but no total nudity please!), through to the baggy white shorts and flannels of the 1930’s…. to the modern day lycra!!
Not interested in sport?
Get out that gold lurex, dig out those Bet Lynch style earrings and anything totally tasteless for a bit of fun, or be Kanye West singing “Gold Digger” with his rappers in gold chains for a Day!! Old Yukon Gold Panners … this way please!
From ancient golden civilisations, re-create Tutankhamun’s tomb. Gold was first worn by humans in 3000BC!
Be a UK Banker, if you dare …. Where did they put our GOLD?
