Saturday 12th July 2014

On Saturday 12th July there will be great excitement in Barnards Green as the traders host the ‘Magical Carnival Capers’ event between 2 and 4pm as part of their support of the Malvern Carnival & Hat Festival 2014.

The traders have planned activities to entertain the crowds as they wait for the parade to arrive in Barnards Green, to help build the sense of excitement. The Carnival which this year has both a vehicle and walking parade will congregate next to the Abbey Gateway in Great Malvern at 2pm and then will set off down Church Street with the vehicle parade leading the way followed by the ‘hat wearing’ group procession. The parade will turn into Avenue Road and then walk downhill to Barnards Green.

The traders will be waiting for the parade to arrive and travel the length of Barnards Green and have arranged lots of free activities to keep the whole family amused.  We have a ‘Comic Magic Show’, a ‘Jitterbugs Dance –Along’ to hat themed tunes, you can try your hand at Circus Skills, enjoy a round of mini Crazy Golf or plant a ‘Bee-Beautiful plant’ to take home. Most of the activities are FREE and are being provided by the traders to raise funds for the Malvern Carnival 2014 charity which is the ‘Action for Children’s Sunshine Centre’ which provides support for locally disadvantaged children in Malvern. You can enter a cake to be judged in the ‘Mad Hatter’s Bake Off’, get involved at the craft table or view the fantastic hats entered in the ‘Best Traders Titfer’ competition. All the traders are working hard to make it a really fun family event and at the same time raising funds for a very worthwhile cause.
