Come one, come all, to the carnival


You’ll be amazed at what’s happening in preparation for this year’s Herne Bay carnival display!

The theme is TIME TRAVEL, so our float will be in the form of HG Wells Time Machine, with walkers surrounding the float from all different eras, such as Victorian, Edwardian, WW1, hippy, glam rock etc. We are looking forward to having Method To The Madness lead with their fabulous dance routine.

TUESDAY 2 AUGUST: Come on down to the Clock Tower Information Centre on Tuesday 2 August to help us decorate our float for the carnival between 11am and 3pm. It’s free to any age who can come down to help. This float will be on display in the Carnival procession.

TUESDAY 9 & FRIDAY 12 AUGUST: Come down to the Clock Tower Information Centre to put your carnival costume together. on Tuesday 9th, we’ll be in the centre between 1pm to 3pm and on Friday 12th, we’ll be there from 11am to 1pm. This is free and we will provide everything you need, so you don’t need to bring anything.

12 ADULTS NEEDED: We are looking for 12 adults who can volunteer to dress up and walk alongside our float. We are ideally looking for six male and six female (but not imperative), to show the six different eras in time. So do you have what it takes to smile, wave, walk and show off to Herne Bay town? Please contact Coleen on 07540392916 if you are interested.

SATURDAY 13 AUGUST: CARNIVAL DAY! Between 2pm onwards The Friends of the Clock Tower will be holding a party for everyone outside the information centre on Central Parade, with music, giveaways and promotional items, so come along and let’s start the fun before the carnival starts.At 4.30pm the judging of the carnival floats start and at 6pm the procession will start.
