Animal Capers is theme for Tonbridge Carnival parade

The Mead School in Tunbridge Wells gave a professional level performance in the  ISA drama contests

TONBRIDGE LIONS are expecting more entries for the town’s Carnival procession though the High Street than ever before on Sunday [June 17].

This year’s theme is Animal Capers, and individuals, charity groups, clubs, schools and businesses are invited to design an float.

The parade will also include bands, majorettes and walking groups alongside the vehicles.

It will leave the car park in front of Sainsbury’s supermarket at 12.30pm and proceed through the town to Tonbridge Castle.

The Mayor of Tonbridge & Malling, Pam Bates, and the President of Tonbridge Lions Club, Gordon Hill, will judge each category.

The annual fete will be held on the Castle Lawn and Castle Walk during which winning entries will be announced and trophies awarded.

The carnival day is organised each year by the town’s Lions Club with support from Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council. This year the event is also sponsored by West Kent College.

The proceeds raised at the event will be distributed to local worthy causes and to the Lions Club’s chosen charities.
