CARNIVAL time is fast approaching as Shirley Lions Carnival is on this Saturday in Shirley Park, billed as “the biggest and best yet.”
Compered by BRMB and hosted by Shirley Lions, the event boasts arena and stage shows, featuring acts including the Shirley Pipe Band and Silvershadow Majorettes, children’s rides, the Village Hotel Combat Class and more.
The annual event will this year raise funds for Brainstrust, the brain cancer charity.
Phil Rippington, Carnival Chairman and Lion, said; “This year we believe we have a wide range of different entertainment that should appeal to everyone, young and old.”
Lorely Burt MP will officially open the carnival at 12.30pm, which will remain open until 4.30pm.
Admission costs £1 per adult and 50 pence for children and seniors.
