Birchwood Carnival 2022

Birchwood Carnival 2022 is set to take place on the main playing fields at Birchwood Forest Park on Sunday 12th June.

A Butterflies, Bees, and Bugs themed Fancy Dress Procession around the park at 12.30pm marks the start of the afternoon's activities and is led this year by Batida Rio Samba Band.  Next is the fancy dress judging and prize-giving followed by the official opening at 1.00pm.

As well as Batida Rio, the afternoon's arena acts include Bob Hogg’s Sheepdog Display, Wild Wings Falconry, and local acts such as Northern Starr Dance.

There will also be a fun dog show running throughout the afternoon and a large fairground.

Other attractions this year include Donkey Rides, a Rodeo Sheep, Climbing Wall, Magic Shows, Circus Skills Workshops, Craft Workshops, Charity and Craft Stalls, Drum Workshops, Local History Displays, and a wide range of Food Outlets.  There will be lots to see and do for the whole family!
