As we’re now just a few days from the opening ceremony of this year’s Carnival week, here’s a seaside themed Spotify playlist to help you get in the mood for all the up-coming activities!

Leave your suggestions below if you think we’ve missed out a great seaside themed track and we’ll see if it’s available on Spotify to add onto the list.

With this year’s Carnival comes a themed Fancy Dress Competition.

Judged at 1.30pm in The Arena on Carnival Day (22nd June), judges will be looking for costumes adopting this year’s theme of ‘Beside the Seaside’.

Perhaps we’ll see Mermaids? Giant Shells? Walking Sandcastles? Victorian/Edwardian Bathers?

It’s time to get thinking!

‘Beside the Seaside’ ideas welcome

A few weeks ago we announced that the theme for the 2013 Somersham Carnival would be ‘Beside The Seaside’ – now we’re after your help to make 2013 the biggest and best carnival yet!

We’d now like to invite you to send us your ideas for seaside related events and activities that we could run during Carnival Week (15-23rd June) and on Carnival Day itself (22nd June).

If you have an idea that celebrates all things seaside or if you know what you love about a seaside getaway, we’d love to hear them – simply drop them into an email and send it to Theresa Baird at secretary@somershamcarnival.org.uk

Volunteers

The Somersham Carnival Committee always welcomes new volunteers, and would like to thank all of our current volunteers who give their time, skills and experience completely free of charge to ensure that we all have a great week of events culminating in a Carnival Day we can be proud of.

Special roles we are actively looking for volunteers to help with are:

  • Plan and organise the Car Treasure Hunt
  • Selling sweets and drinks on Carnival Day
  • Selling Grand Prize Draw tickets on Carnival Day
  • Volunteer Bar tenders

If you would like to help with the above, or just to volunteer with us generally on Carnival Day, then just email the Carnival Committee.
