Save the planet at this year’s Carnival

The annual Thame Carnival takes place next Saturday, 15 June. The town centre parade begins at 12pm and will be followed by the fete at Southern Road Recreation Ground between 1pm and 4pm.

The theme this year is ‘Saving the Planet’, so the organisers are encouraging everyone to help them this year by:

  • Refilling your bottles at the water station;
  • Bringing your own (non-breakable) cutlery & plates – wash stations provided;
  • Taking your cup back to the bar for a refill;
  • Using the recycling bins available

As well as these initiatives, all the usual fun activities will be on offer including: live entertainment, food & drink, big bouncy castle, egg throwing and much more. Almost 60 stalls are booked to attend the fete offering a range of refreshments, information and activities, all in support of local causes. Plus, there will be an exclusive ‘Meet and Greet’ with United Vibe – there are just two tickets left, which can be purchased here (£15 per person with proceeds going to the Thame Carnival charities).

The carnival will be supporting Red Kite Family Centre and Thame Youth Projects this year. An event programme is available from the Town Hall.
