Shirley Carnival

Following the latest Government announcements, Shirley Lions have reluctantly had to cancel Shirley Carnival for July 10th. However there is light at the end of the tunnel as we are pleased to announce that the event has been rescheduled for Saturday 28th August. Stalls are still available so please use the link below to book yourself a stall.

Please note that the process for booking a stall has been simplified and you no longer have to download an application form and email it back to us. Simply click on the link below, complete the form, and finally hit the SUBMIT button at the end. Payments can as usual be made online or by cheque and the necessary details are on the form. In the unforeseen event that we do have to cancel the Carnival, then all stall booking payments will be refunded in full.

Thank you and look forward to seeing you!
