Aftermath of 1961 Carnival

This week in our Throwback Thursday, we visit the aftermath of the 1961 Carnival with a few paper cuttings from the Saffron Walden Weekly News about the balloon hunt and money being put towards the parish roof restoration.

Saffron Walden Round Table has always been proud to be able to donate all funds that we raise back into the local communities.

If you would like to donate, then please head to

If you would like to make a donation request then head to

We consider all applications for funds from within the Saffron Walden and surrounding areas and look forward to hearing from you.

What are your fondest memories of the Saffron Walden Carnival – 8DayWeekend? And what would you like to see on stage next year?

Share in the comments below and we could share it in a future Throwback Thursday post
