This year's Carnival took place on Saturday 8th July 2017 when over 4,000 people turned up to browse among the many stalls and enjoy the programme of entertainment on a Edwardian theme.

The carnival was officially opened by our local member of parliament, Julian Knight MP. Having declared the carnival open he then toured round all the stalls and the arena with our new President, Lion Jeremy Lees chatting to all the stallholders and performers.

The programme of entertainment for the afternoon commenced with a rousing musical performance from the Shirley Brass Band. The entertainment continued with performances from the Animated Dance Company, Silhill Morris dancers and the Julian Barnes "Dogs herding ducks" show.

The very young were not forgotten as they enjoyed the fairground rides and Punch & Judy played out to lots of "Behind You" and "Oh yes he is - Oh no he isn't"  

New to the Carnival this year was the judging of the School's Gardening competition which we have been running in conjunction with Notcutts Garden Centre. Miles Butterworth from Notcutts presented 100 vouchers to the two winning schools which were Streetsbrook School in the Infants section and Haslucks Green School in the Junior section. More information and photos for this can be seen on the Youth page of our website.

The net amount raised from the event after all costs was 5,300 and  we should like to place on record our thanks to our main sponsors: The Window Centre, 102 Marshall Lake Road, Shirley, Barclays Bank plc, 201 Stratford Road, Shirley and ASDA superstores, Parkgate, Shirley who covered most of the expenses incurred in putting this event on.
