Carnival Extravaganza

Our Carnival Extravaganza in the Lantern Garden is one of the main ways to enter this years event. It will be held from 11:30am – 2pm on Saturday 25th September.

In the middle of the Lantern Garden in Abbot Hall is our magical performance space called “the dell”. Here you will be invited to show off your amazing entries for all to see. Entries will be judged and the winners announced later that day. 

Entrants are  encouraged to create costumes that they can show off in the ring, each group will be given a time slot where they can catwalk, stomp, dance, or perform in any way they like.

The carnival Extravaganza is open to anyone, community groups, families, friends, or individuals.
