The ever-popular Stapleford Carnival takes place next week.

The carnival is on Saturday September 5 and includes a host of activities.

The event kicks off in the morning when the Ambassador’s Marching Band from Borrowash perform on Walter Parker Square to bring a musical element to the monthly market before they make their way to the carnival site on Ilkeston Road Recreation Ground.

They will form part of the opening ceremony around 12.30pm and are also doing a display in the afternoon.

Organiser Katharine Stewart from the Notts - Derbys Hemlockstone Lions Club, said: “At around 11.30am you might see a parade of various vehicles letting everyone know to come to the carnival site and see what is going on,

“Stapleford Carnival is a charity carnival raising money for other charities and good causes on behalf of the lions so we need all the money we can get, to help those needy people.

“The line up will entertain all members of the family. The children will be delighted with Peter Presto – they must come along to see his varied show, and Bill Brookman will entertain children and adults. The popular Let’s Get Drumming will be there and Storm Troopers will be around the field having lots of fun with the visitors.

“Kev is bringing his Birds of Prey and of course Gizmo and his friends from Parrot Aid will be amusing everyone.”

The event will also include the Maypole Band, and UK Trini and Friends will be showing off their fantastic costumes.

Families can also enjoy a fun fair and stalls.

The carnival is also a classic vehicle show.

People who love cars and vehicles of all kinds have the opportunity of seeing some wonderful classics.
