This year's Town Procession is

Famous Firsts

This year we hope you will help us to celebrate everything and everyone who represents a Famous 1st; the first man on the moon, the winner of the Booker prize, the best cake on the 'Bake off', the first western rock band to perform in China! We can help to find lorries/vans for floats and remember that we now also like to invite walking groups and performers to join us to make it a real carnival style celebration! And there are lots of prizes! For more info visit the page.


Anyone can join in and if you dress up in the theme of the procession you can win a prize and an award. Entries are judged from 09.30am so make sure you leave plenty of time. To find out more look at the Town Procession page on this website and the exciting prizes on offer!
