ORGANISERS of Shirley Carnival have promised this year’s event will be the biggest and best yet.
Tomorrow (Saturday’s) jamboree will feature a host of arena and stage events, including performances by Shirley Pipe Band and the Animated Dance Academy.
Other attractions will include children’s rides, stalls and the Nachdey Dasdey Bhangra Group.
Phil Rippington, carnival chairman, said: “Over the 35 years the Lions have been organising the carnival, it has become an increasingly important event on the community’s calendar.”
Gates open at 12noon. Admission is £1.
