St Breward Carnival 2018

St Breward Carnival, the highest Carnival in Cornwall and on Saturday 7 July certainly the place to be – England won their quarter final game and the sun shone for the Carnival.  2018 is a special year for the Carnival Committee as it is thirty years since the Carnival was restarted in 1988 after a lapse of some 20 years.

A colourful cavalcade assembled at Rylands and then travelled for a mile to the Football Club – a distance of a mile. This year the procession was led by St Breward Silver Band returning to marching after a break of some eight years.

The Marquee on the football pitch was the setting for the presentation of cups and trophies to the many and varied entrants who included visiting Royalty from Bude, Launeston, St Neot and St Tudy and a surprise visit from Donald Trump.  The lovely long summer evening was enjoyed by all with families sitting in groups on the football field with the children enjoying the bouncy castles and having their faces painted

Carnival Committee Chairman Denton Bourne was delighted by the turn out ‘we are a village carnival celebrating life in our village and we welcome everyone who comes to join us for the celebrations.  The Carnival Committee is very grateful for all the help and support during Carnival Week’.
