Lorries needed

Nuneaton Carnival is issuing an appeal for help. More Lorries are needed to be included in the Procession in one of the towns biggest events!

This year’s Carnival will be taking place on Sunday 8th June and this year’s theme 'Pack Up and Your Troubles... And Smile' in commemoration of the centenary anniversary of the start of World War 1 has resonated with a large number of local community groups wanting to be involved.

Procession  Manager Martin Hobbins has confirmed that the Committee is looking for lorries, specifically 7.5 ton curtain-siders if possible as these do not have the same restrictions for drivers or other unique ways to transport those looking to be involved around the 3 mile route, anybody who can help should contact Martin Hobbins on 07932 702706  or email:

The route will be reverting to 2 stops as seen in previous years, at St Nicolas Church on Attleborough Rd and on Vicarage Rd.
Mr. Hobbins has confirmed that 3 bands 1st Ibstock Scout Group Band, Spirit of Coventry Drum Corps and Army cadet band have already been lined up to ensure the route is as musical as ever.

On Carnival Day you will be able to see the new Senior Carnival Court;
Queen Emmi Burton as well as her princesses Tanya Alcock and Rosemary Russell 

and for the first time ever the new Junior Court;
Queen Evie Philpott and her princesses Mia Reynolds and Jaycee Snow,

Who are currently preparing for the day and having their dresses fitted by local business Full length and Fabulous.
