Acocks Green Carnival has been taking place for over 30 years. As is the tradition it is on the first Saturday of July at Westley Road Recreation Ground.
Its always a lively and fun day starting with a parade of floats, bands and representatives from local groups. The theme for the parade this year is Science Fact and Fiction.
If your organisation would like to take part in the Parade, either on a vehicle or on foot, entry forms are available from Fox Hollies Forum or click here. Closing date is 1st June. And there are prizes for the best entry. Carnival Stewards are also required to escort the procession from Archbishop Ilsleys, Victoria Road to the Recreation Ground, perhaps you would like to help?
