LEAMINGTON Carnival is inviting entries for this year's procession

The carnival team has been able to announce the opening of entries as it is now on a secure financial footing.

The procession will be slightly different than back in 2014, but is set to take around 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete.

Both floats and walking entries are being encouraged to come forward.

Jamie Walker, Event Chairman said: "We are now in a financially stable situation and we are now happy to accept applications

We’d encourage schools, charity, community groups and businesses of Leamington and surrounding areas to get involved in the procession. We’d like as many people as possible to enter this years event."

"With carnival day getting closer, there is a good atmosphere around the committee" He added.

The deadline for float applications is March 1st.

There are also still opportunities for food and trade stands within the festival.

Anyone who wishes to enter a float or be a walking entrant should email owen@leamingtoncarnival.org.uk or get in touch via the Leamington Carnival Facebook page and to apply for a stall contact sarah@leamingtoncarnival.org.uk or pam@leamingtoncarnival.org.uk
