There’s plenty going on at this year’s 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 around the village starts around 11.30am and this year will be featuring floats with the theme ‘Continents’. We are expecting the usual variety of costumes, fancy dress and fun, so make sure you look out for us along the route between 11.30am and 12.45pm.

Water Orton Dog Show

New for 2018 and hosted in conjunction with Birmingham Dogs’ Home, we are proud to present the Water Orton Carnival Dog Show.
Anyone can enter their prized pooch and there will be three classes: Handsome Dog, Beautiful Bitch and Golden Oldie (8 years and over). The winner of each class gets a doggy goody bag. There will also be a trophy for Best in Show.

Guest of Honour, Simon Davies for TVs ‘The Voice’

We are delighted to welcome local lad Simon Davies as our Guest of Honour this year, most recognisable from his recent appearances on tv’s The Voice where he was mentored by Tom Jones.

With a soaring falsetto and soulful voice complemented by his soothing playing. Simon’s distinguishable sound will resonate and engage with a range of audiences, young and old.

Simon judging the floats, fancy dress and bonny baby competition and will of course be singing in the main arena at 1.45pm.
