Cary Carnival is part of the Wessex Grand Prix Circuit, which celebrates its 30th Anniversary this year.

This year’s carnival could be our best yet, with a great big mix of competition entries and other acts. Carnival clubs confirmed so far include Highwayman CC, Hot Rock CC, Cary Comedians (of course!), Revellers CC, Storm CC and Kipling CC.
Other folk taking part will include the HMS Heron Volunteer Band, 501stGarrison Stormship Troopers, two classic cars from Haynes Motor Museum, Lizzie The Fire-eater, the Meridian Corps of Drum, The Poole Gun Display Team and – back by popular demand – The Male Majorettes.
Our 2016 Programme will be available around Castle Cary by the end of September so look out for that: everything you need to know to make the most of your carnival and STILL only one measly pound!

Carnival Royalty for 2016

We held our Children’s Disco on 2 July and this year’s Carnival Royals were chosen. Thanks to all the Mums and Dads who came along! Our Carnival Queen this year is Emily Pinnions (10), with her Attendants Isla Briody (9) and Kizzie Wells (8). Our Prince and Princess for our Children’s Carnival are Theo Pocock (6) and Kaila Mullett (6).   Photos to follow, later this month!

Illuminated Carnival 2015

Castle Cary & Ansford’s Illuminated Carnival was bigger, better and bolder than ever last Saturday night.  A programme of afternoon events sparked anticipation in the town, which was more than met by the biggest procession the town has seen in years.
