There’s plenty going on at this year’s Golden Carnival once again and this is just a small selection so, for full details, don’t forget to pick up your programme.
Procession around the village
The procession will once again be headed up by annual favourites the Northfield Caledonia Pipes and Drums and this year will be featuring floats with the theme ‘A Golden Moment in Time’. We are expecting the usual variety of costumes, fancy dress and fun, so make sure you look out for us along the route between 11am and 12.45pm.
Savage Skills Mountain Bike and BMX Stunt Team
With a selection of the world’s leading stunt riders, an experienced commentator and uniquely designed display rig, Savage Skills provide a must-see show. They pride themselves on being the most accomplished stunt show team in the UK, with 8 World and over 25 British Championship titles. You’ll see some of the most impressive tricks, jumps and stunts, many of which wouldn’t think possible on a bicycle. Prepare to be amazed!
Guest of Honour, Mark Green Elvis Experience
Mark Green has been performing his Elvis Experience Tribute Show for over 13 years with many appearances on national TV, international radio and theatre. He has also appeared on stage in several venues in Memphis including Graceland, he has performed in Tupelo and sang with the Dempseys. He has a huge following locally and was voted the best Elvis Tribute Act in the Midlands by Free Radio/BRMB.
Being a lifetime fan of Elvis, Mark pays great attention to detail in his shows. He has a full complement of Elvis Costumes made by the original costume makers in the United States. His wardrobe includes a wide variety of the quintessential 70s jumpsuits, replicas of 50s suits, outfits from the movies and the well known, much loved, ‘68 comeback special leather suit. Elvis, I mean Mark, will also be bringing a bit of extra razzmatazz to the procession!
Circus Sensible will be bringing their ‘baby big top’ along with two performers. Their Circus Skills Workshop will be taking place all day providing great entertainment for children and adults alike. Skills include juggling, plate spinning, beginners stilts, diabolo, devilstick, poi, hula hoop, chinese ribbons etc. And of course, it’s all FREE!
