Bakewell Carnival 2018

Bakewell Carnival is the biggest and best carnival in the North of England. There are great events running throughout the week, everyone involved with the carnival committee hope you will join them and take part in Derbyshire's Premier Carnival here in beautiful Bakewell.

The Carnival Queen and her entourage are looking forward to give you a special wave when they see you and when you buy a programme or put some money in one of the tins you can be happy to know that everything you donate will be going to local charities as always.
