Bradley Stoke Carnival 2017

Bradley Stoke Carnival

Bradley Stoke Carnival takes place this year on Saturday the 26th of August 2017 11am to 6pm on the Jubilee Green, Savages Wood Road, Bradley Stoke, BS32 8HL

The aim of the carnival has always been to bring the community of our town together for a great day of family entertainment that doesn't have to cost the earth.

A new feature this year is the community zone which has been sponsored by the Willow Brook Centre, it will feature a total wipeout, gladiator sticks and a giant 60 foot assault course suitable for both children and the not so young! These will all be available to use free of charge although a donation bucket for the Mayor's charities will be available should you like to make a small voluntary donation.

Punch and Judy shows will run at intervals throughout the afternoon as they have previously been very popular amongst all age groups including adults!

Star Wars themed stilt walkers will join in the parade and will be walking around the carnival field during the afternoon for some awesome selfie opportunities!

The live music line up is family friendly and will hopefully please all age groups with some great tribute acts including, Neil Diamond, Robbie Williams and Elvis as well as local performers including the winner of last year's Bradley Stoke Has Talent competition.

Also taking place in front of the stage area will be an amazing fire show featuring a professional three person team of fire breathers performing an awesome routine, as well as a performance from the City of Bristol Pipes and Drums once they have arrived at the Jubilee Field at the head of this year's silver themed parade.

A variety of community and commercial stalls will be situated around the field for you to enjoy as well as a vintage games area; a licensed bar will also be available throughout the afternoon.

No car parking is available on site or on Savages Wood Road, however Parking is available at the Willow Brook Centre and the usual four hour limit has kindly been removed on Saturday the 26th of August only.
