Thousands turn out to enjoy party weekend

Published Tuesday, 04 July 2017

Thousands of people enjoyed a weekend of sunshine, music and entertainment at the Wellingborough Carnival and Party in the Park, organised by the Borough Council of Wellingborough and the Wellingborough Carnival Association.

A record number of traders and community groups had stalls this year, alongside carnival floats and live performances by artists including Ed Sheeran impersonator Jack Shepherd, Paul Strummer and the 2Tones.

Hundreds of pounds were raised for charities and younger visitors experienced some exciting new attractions, including a giant bubble display, inflatable climbing wall and the Creation Station crafts area.

Councillor Martin Griffiths, Leader of Wellingborough Council, said: “A great time was had by all and I’m delighted that so many people turned out to enjoy themselves.

“The council works closely with the carnival association to provide this annual weekend of free activities and entertainment and I’d like to thank everyone who worked hard to deliver these fantastic events.”
