A carnival which has been held in Axbridge for almost 50 years will return next month.

The Blackberry Carnival has taken place in the town since the 1960s and this year’s event will run on September 22.

Throughout the event, dozens of floats and walkers will make their way through the packed streets while plenty of other entertainment will be on offer.

Bev Davies, chairman of the carnival committee, told the Mercury there will be some new additions this year.

She said: “New banners have been ordered to advertise the event and we wish to encourage as many local organisations, individuals and families to participate – whether that be a walking entry, trailed entry or vehicular.

“There is no theme for the carnival again this year to try to encourage participation, so anything goes.”

The carnival will be held from 2-6pm.

For more information, call Bev on 01934 732168.
