This App is available NOW so do check it out!
This is early days for us but the plan is to review its use after this year’s Carnival and develop it further in the future to include additional features such as online donations.

The Carnival Committee would like to thank Ian James and the team at i2i Infinity in Shepton Mallet (www.i2i-infinity.co.uk) who offered to produce for us the new Carnival App and have worked hard to produce this early version in time for the 2017 Carnival

   
 

Shepton Mallet Carnival is part of the Somerset Guy Fawkes Circuit. Traditionallyheld early November to commemorate the attempted blowing up of the Houses of Parliament. Somerset Carnivals are very highly regarded as the largest spectacular illuminated processions in the world.The Guy Fawkes Circuit starts at Bridgwater continuing to Burnham on Sea,Weston-Super-Mare, North Petherton, Shepton Mallet, Wells, finishing at Glastonbury for dates please see.

The Somerset Carnivals date back more than 400 years, and are one of the most spectacular unique events in Somerset today. In some of the bigger locations, such as Bridgwater and Glastonbury, you can expect to see crowds of up to 150,000.

Carts as they are referred to in Somerset, are designed and built by dedicated carnival clubs around the West Country. These carnival clubs have many members who raise money throughout the year, and work relentlessly to achieve their spectacular carnival entries. Their completed cart then takes part in the carnival parade along with over 100 other entries, these range from single masqueraders dancing in the streets to 100ft illuminated carnival carts, some with up to 30,000 light bulbs, these will be in the categories of tableau, feature or comic all pulled by decorated tractors.

Carnival is very competitive and entrants are striving to obtain every mark in order to win the coveted trophies. Judging takes place whilst the procession is on the move and the results are made known after the procession has ended, but all aiming to win the prestigious county cup.
