Barlow Carnival

17-21 August 2022

Carnival Day - Saturday 20 August

The Carnival is here again and we are hoping this summer spell just holds on… (even though on Wednesday we ‘Bless the Wells’, which is a traditional ceremony, giving thanks for our water and hoping it will always be there for us.)


With so much happening over Carnival Weekend we feel there will be events and activity which will be interesting and enjoyable for everyone in the village , as well as the visitors we welcome.

So why not come and join in the fun  and celebration of village life and traditional family entertainment Everyone is invited!


Before the parade, do make sure that you visit the well dressings and also the wonderful flower arrangements in St Lawrence Church.


On your way look out for those famous scarecrows which may be hiding anywhere! See how many you can find.

Don’t miss the parade of floats, fancy dress and village Royalty, which start at Springfield Road at 2.00pm, progressing through the village and finishes at the Recreation Ground, ready for the afternoons entertainment.
