Welcome to Chippenham Carnival 2019
Escape the ordinary and experience Chippenham Carnival: Lost in Space, brought to you by Chippenham Connected in partnership with Chippenham Town Council and supported by Faresaver from 12-8pm on Saturday 13th July 2019!
This year marks 50 years since the first moon landing so we’re going to be getting lost in space for this year’s Chippenham Carnival! The number of entrants in last year’s procession quadrupled on the first year and we can’t wait to see who comes forward to take part this time!
Island Park’s landscape will be transformed and offer visitors lots of quirky space-themed live activity from 12noon, hosted by everyone’s favourite wacky guy, Doc Brown.
With performances from local dance troupes and musicians on the main stage, children’s characters as well as children’s rides and family games, whilst the picnic zone is the perfect place to enjoy treats from food stalls. The return of the Anonymous Travelling Market will delight visitors with hand-crafted items, gifts and produce from trade and charity stalls across the county, as well as a sprinkling of local traders.
Official Host, Doc Brown will host a space-themed Fancy Dress Competition at 2pm at Island Park joined by the Mayor of Chippenham. Everything and anything space related is welcome – think space, fantasy, sci-fi and even music! The annual Carnival King, Queen, Prince and Princess will be crowned at 3pm with the support of Emery Gate Shopping Centre.
Other free action-packed activities planned include a space-climbing wall for those explorers in the crowd and space face painting, plus a space themed photo wall and space-craft activities for all the family to enjoy.
Join us again this year to really bring Chippenham Carnival to life!
