Performers required for Bromsgrove Carnival

Performers required for Bromsgrove Carnival

Bromsgrove Carnival is just a few weeks away and organisers need more young performers to come forward and have the chance to shine.

Talented youngsters in music, dance, theatre and comedy are needed to keep the thousands expected as this year’s event entertained.

There is set to be a main stage and a second smaller stage set up in Sanders Park, in Kidderminster Road.

The entertainment begins after the procession on Saturday, June 18, at 1pm, and runs until 8pm.

Preparations for this year’s carnival weekend are now entering the final stages and there is still time for Bromsgrove groups to enter the trolley procession.

Among those who took part last year were samba band Someone at the Door, the Basement Project, and town scouts and girl guides.

Groups can make a trolley based on a theme and enter for free. The carnival’s organising committee will even provide a trolley.

Carnival organisers are also appealing for people to get involved as volunteers.

A variety of roles are available including a procession or race marshall, stage hand, DJ or MC, crowd control or safety marshall. Applicants will need to be 18-years-old or over in most circumstances.

To register for the parade, or anyone interested in becoming a volunteer, contact festival chairman Ian Perrygrove on email, ian.perrygrove@gmail.com, or call Ian on 07739577209.

Ian said: "We've got 18 hours of stage time for the best of Bromsgrove talent to fill and we need even more performers to help pack it.

"Contact us to join the line up for the weekend, enjoy the atmosphere and give Bromsgrove a great weekend."
