Carnival Procession Theme Announced!!!
The Carnival procession is one of the most revered spectacles and show case events for the town of Saffron Walden when on the first Saturday of the 8 Day Weekend, over 10,000 people are expected to take to the streets to watch the magnificent motorcade. The procession dates back over 60 years and has grown to what is thought to be the 2nd largest non-funded in the UK. Some even claim that it is visible from outer space!
Organisers have been inundated with requests to know the theme for 2020 and after a much discussion 🌎“Planet Earth”🌍 was chosen.
Procession lead Phil Kyte said “choosing a theme that allows creativity, flair and something for everyone is always a well debated topic for us. We felt that this theme was both topical right now but also unrestrictive. I hope that by the early release of the theme, it will allow everyone to start planning ahead”.
The new 8 Day Weekend website will be launched later this year with more details so for now, we encourage people to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for regular updates and announcements.
