This year's Shirley Carnival took place on Saturday 13th July 2019 when over 3,000 people turned up to browse among the many stalls and enjoy the programme of entertainment.    

The Carnival was officially opened by our Club President, Lion Martin Conlon. Having declared the carnival open he then toured round all the stalls chatting to all the stallholders and performers.

The programme of entertainment for the afternoon commenced with a rousing musical performance from the Shirley Band. The entertainment continued with performances from the Misselchalke Gun Dogs, Hi Bri's Dance Studio and the JDC Dance Vibe..

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"  

Now in its second year, the judging of the School's Gardening competition which we have been running in conjunction with Notcutts Garden Centre took place. Jackie Barker from Notcutts presented 100 vouchers to the two winning schools which were Woodlands Infants School in the Infants section and Haslucks Green School in the Year 4 + section. More information and photos for this can be seen on the Youth page of our website.

We still have some sponsorship to collect and bills to pay but once the net amount raised from the event is known it will be published here. We should like to place on record our thanks to our main sponsors: The Window Centre, 102 Marshall Lake Road, Shirley, Midhire Van Rental, Drayton Road, Shirley and ASDA superstores, Parkgate, Shirley who covered most of the expenses incurred in putting this event on.
