Keep Keeping Calm and Carry on …. Location Change – Ambergate Carnival 9th July

keep calm

The week running up to carnival is proving a testing time. The alternative field which we had identified and a significant amount of work had gone into preparing can, unfortunately, not be used.

The last minute changes to plans due to the state of the Rec. meant there was not sufficient time to get our entertainment licenses and permissions changed. I understand there have also been objects raised about the new location. Both of these lead us to conclude we cannot use the replacement field.

This leaves the only option to revert back to the Rec.

Whilst the water logging in the centre is bad the committee are confident there is sufficient area remaining on the rec to still proceed. Some of the layouts will have to change but it was great to see everyone pull together and look at how we can still put on a great carnival and after party. We look forward to seeing you all there and making this a great event.

We have unfortunately decided to cancel the Friday night event in order to concentrate on getting everything ready for the Saturday.

The weather is looking hopeful but I don’t want to tempt fate – fingers crossed everyone

Location Change

Keep Calm and Carry on – Ambergate Carnival 9th July 2016

keep calm

There have been a few changes to plans due to the appropriately “Best of British” weather. The Rec where we have been holding the carnival is water logged and the decision was taken that it could not be used for the carnival this year. This set off a deluge (pun intended) of work to try and find an alternative and luckily we have! there is still a lot of work to do to move locations and get the field ready but we are confident it will proceed. We are moving to a feild owned by the Litchfield Group {many thanks to them}, a location where the carnival has been in the past when it was a social club for the village.

We have unfortunately decided to cancel the Friday night event in order to concentrate on getting everything ready for the Saturday.

Sadly the procession will not be able to go through the main village and will be shorter than normal but hopefully your support and the concentration of support will create a fantastic atmosphere.

The weather is looking hopeful but I don’t want to tempt fate – fingers crossed everyone
