It’s hard to imagine that it’s almost a month since the 2014 Somersham Carnival Week ended.
Thankfully, the day was sunny – unlike the following weekend which was ruined by torrential rain.
The Carnival Committee would like to say a HUGE ‘Thank You’ to all of the organisations, businesses, community groups, and individuals, who kindly, and most generously, offered their time, expertise, services, and prizes. We would also like to thank all of the people who attended and supported the events that ran during Carnival Week.
Your support helps to ensure that Somersham Carnival continues to not only run, but to grow too.
As the memories of Carnival Week get further and further away, we’ve compiled a selection of photographs, kindly supplied by JLC Photography Ltd. What was your favourite part? Tell us in the comments space below.
A Commonwealth Carnival Day wouldn’t be complete without Her Majesty.
The 2013 Somersham Carnival Princess is to be crowned this Sunday at Victory Hall.
The Carnival Princess will be crowned at 3.30pm at Victory Hall on Sunday 16th June. Her attendants will also be appointed.
As every Carnival Princess knows, she and her attendants have a very important job to do during Carnival Week – with the awarding of the Country Craft Competition prizes, and in leading the Carnival Procession on Carnival Day (22nd June).
This afternoon, Norwood Playing Fields has played host to the 2012 Somersham Carnival Day.
The celebrations kicked off with the Procession, which left The Trundle at 12:15pm, taking the newly-crowned Princess Morgan and her attendants Rachel Day and Eleanor Phipps, on a colourful carnival-filled atmosphere to the playing field, followed by many floats, walkers and classic vehicles.
A Baby Competition, Comedy Sumo Wrestling, a Fun Fair, a beer tent, the music tent, and many stalls, kept the crowds entertained with a series of events taking place in the main arena. Even the sunshine decided to ‘Go For Gold’ – a nod to this year’s theme.
Carnival Day is not the end of Carnival Week though, with a Family Cycle Ride, 5-a-side Football and a Pool Tournament taking place tomorrow (Sunday 24th June).
Here’s just a few photos from what has been a fun-filled day.
A new Princess has been crowned in Somersham and is ready for her Carnival Day duties.

The Princess’ duties see her take centre stage in Saturday’s procession of carnival floats and walkers along with her two attendants. The procession leaves The Trundle at 12:15pm and makes its way to the Parkhall Playing Field to mark the start of the Carnival Day proceedings.
