About this event:

This is a charity event held in Bourton Park “Paddock” area. The Carnival will begin at 10.30am and end at 11.00pm approximately and will incorporate a number of familiar aspects previously associated with “Relay for Life”. The main themes will be a designated walking circuit and a separate running circuit and teams will carry a baton round continuously between 10.30am and 9.30pm. Alongside this backdrop will be fun activities/sideshows for all the family to enjoy.

There will also be an arena and stage area for musical performances and sporting events and demonstrations to take place. These will include an inter-Scout/Guides competition, an inter Army/Air Force cadets tournament and many other exciting contributions and participation from local groups and organisations. It is also Armed Forces Day and we will be celebrating this with activities, military vehicle collections and items reflecting this.

The final hour in the day will be a complete change of mood. These will be moments for reflection and remembering those loved ones who lost the fight against cancer – in the form of a brief ceremony followed by walking the track by lantern light. A big screen will capture the memorable moments during the day with interviews with participating individuals, live commentaries, Cancer Awareness messages of hope and an hourly update on the progress and status of the walking/running teams in their efforts to reach the target distances.

On the day: 

For those not taking part in the walk/ run, we'd are sure you will enjoy the carnival rides, stalls and helping us celebrate armed forces day. The carnival is an event for all to enjoy and help us raise money to beat cancer.
