The date for the carnival has been set as Saturday, June 21 and it will take place on Butcher’s Stile field.

Carnival day will include bands, rides, stalls and a spectacular arena stunt display as well as the traditional parade of royalty, retinues and visiting queens Carnival organisers are appealing for more boys and girls to join the retinue.

Vicki Jones, from the carnival committee, said: “We would love a few more retinue members.

“Dresses will be provided, so girls would not have any expense.

Practice sessions for retinue members will be held in June before the carnival.
