Plans are being finalised for Burnfoot Carnival which will see townsfolk flock to the popular fun and music extravaganza next Saturday (July 5).

The event has become a firm favourite in the summer calendar since it was resurrected by Burnfoot Community Council several years ago, and this year organisers are hoping for a bumper crowd. Chairman Richard Knight said: “The carnival just keeps getting better and better and everyone in the community, and the wider community, looks forward to it. It’s a great boost and we can already feel spirits lifting as it gets closer.”

The day begins at 1pm with a procession from Henderson Road, before the opening ceremony at 1.30pm. As well as performances from special guests, entertainment will also be provided by Got2Dance, Pyre, 3D, Still Whisky, and Dark Horse, before the carnival comes to a close at 9pm.

The carnival site (opposite the school) will also boast a beer tent. Entry costs £4 for adults, £1 for high school pupils, and is free for under 12s.
