The Arbury Carnival Committee are very excited about this year’s coming Carnival, which marks the 42nd anniversary of the Arbury Carnival, which took place in 1977 to celebrate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. 

This year we are lucky enough to be joined by over 20 groups on the procession, we would love to see a very colourful procession and it would great to your group dressed up along the lines of the theme.  There will also be a costume competition during the carnival.
