    We are beginning to book a brilliant line up of entertainment for this year. The Smokehouse Blue Marching Jazz Band will be heading up our parade and then playing around the field during the afternoon, with local groups performing on/in front of our stage. Our fantastic magician from last year, JezO's Events Ltd., will be performing his hilarious brand of magic again, which is not to be missed! In the evening we have two very local bands - The 55 - a young group with members from both Burwell & Bottisham and The Compressors - a Burwell based band with a lively and varied set. Our headline band has yet to be confirmed but hopefully something to keep us dancing & singing till the close! If there are any Burwell clubs, classes or sports groups who would like to put on a display but haven’t been contacted please do get in touch and we will do our best to include you. But please remember that time is limited so once the slots are filled we will put you on the list for next year. Please contact: patkilbey@mail.com

    Exciting additions to this years carnival, feature two performances of the Ben (Savage Skills) Savage with the Savage Skills - Cycle Stunt Team. Not everyday a former World Champion comes to Burwell! Add to this the amazing ball juggling skills of Soccer Freestyler Ben Nuttall, a former Birmingham City academy player who upon his release has launched himself into a career which has taken him all over the world, culminating in an invitation to perform at last years Champions League Final! Ben currently holds the Guinness World Records for 187 keepy uppys, but with a rugby ball! He will be on stage and giving demonstrations around the showground during the afternoon. Later he will be recruiting and judging entrants to our own free to enter Soccer Freestyle competition.

    We will be looking for Children 10 years, and under, to compete in our programme of Kiddies Sports. a new addition this year.

    Invitations are extended to all Clubs, works teams, football teams to take part in our 6, or 8, participant 'Tug of War' competition, which will take place after the Soccer Freestyle Competition.
    The Fun Fair will be larger than ever this year, with the addition of two large rides, a Big Wheel and an adult set of Chairoplanes, plus the previous years favourites, the HIGH Energy Miami, Dodgems and the giant Circus Fun House. All in all we aim to make this years Carnival the best ever with something for everyone which we hope will be enjoyed by all.

    As part of our additional fundraising for 2019, we successfully applied to be one of the three local groups that could potentially benefit from your 1% spend on Co-op products & services from our North St. & Ness Rd. Co-ops. If you aren’t already a Co-op member, please do sign-up, use your card and then nominate either Burwell Carnival, Burwell Tigers Football Club or Friends of Burwell Village College to benefit further and you get 5% back to spend as well. Everyone’s a winner, so please do take action if you haven’t done so already.
