Telford’s annual carnival is back!
This year we will be celebrating 50 years of Telford and looking back at some of the things which have made Telford terrific!
Telford Carnival 2018 will be a feast for the senses with a parade of colourful large scale extravagant hand-made structures which will all be walked, pushed, pulled or wheeled on local roads around the town centre. The parade will be brought to life with music, dance, and carnival costumes.
The procession includes many sections made up of volunteers, community groups and organisations from around the borough. Each group is being supported by a team of professional carnival makers, choreographers and a mass-movement director to create the structures, costumes, music and dances which will all bring the procession together.
Inspired by everything from Telford’s past and present, from the famous to our everyday unsung heroes this year’s carnival is bought to you by the people of Telford themselves to celebrate the town’s landmark birthday in a way that won’t be forgotten.
The carnival procession will create a fantastic atmosphere around the park and surrounding areas and people are asked to line to roads around the town centre to view the parade, show their support and take photos.
The procession will finish with a dance and music finale in the town park arena where live music and entertainment will continue on stage throughout the day for people to sit back, enjoy and create celebrations of their own. Why not bring along your own picnic?
There will also be all of the usual carnival activities such as sports activities, a bouncing castle, food and drink stalls and a fun fair.
Come along for another celebratory event to mark Telford's 50th birthday
