A day at the Seaside

Wombourne Carnival will be back this year on the first Sunday in July with a theme of “A day at the Seaside”. The carnival will be taking place at the Civic Centre on Sunday 3rd July and we are pleased that the much-loved Carnival Parade will also be happening.

wombourne-carnivalThe parade will start at 12pm to allow residents and guests of Wombourne to line the parade route to cheer on the floats and follow them up to the main carnival site for the official opening at 1pm. The Parade will start at Wombourne Civic Centre, passing down Gravel Hill, Common Road, Giggetty Lane, Planks Lane, Church Road, High street and back to Wombourne Civic Centre. There will be temporary road closures during the parade so we ask for your patience during this time and hope people join in the festivities.

The theme this year is “A day at the Great British Seaside” and to compliment the theme we have our very own Wombourne Beach with Donkey Rides, Sandcastle competitions, a Beach Bar and the Radio “Wom” Roadshow.

If you or your community group – including Schools, Brownies/Guides, Cubs/Scouts, dance groups, Vintage cars and pubs among others – can join the parade, please let us know by email or posting on our Facebook or Twitter pages.

The carnival will have a wide variety of stalls made up of independent traders, local businesses, community groups and local charities as well as lots of family entertainment including a funfair, bands, music groups, dance/drama groups, women’s institute event and the Wombourne Village Quacky Races.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
