As you may have heard, Castle Meadow in Wilton, the usual site of Wilton Community Carnival, was landscaped and re-seeded in Autumn 2012. This means that the Carnival is not allowed on the site until the grass has established itself, so this year we have had to find an alternative venue.

Wilton Community Carnival is delighted to announce a new partnership with Wilton Shopping Village who have invited us to share their excellent facilities. This event at the Village will provide an exciting new opportunity for the people of Wilton to showcase a great event at a new venue.

It will of course be a different type of event from previous years. We are not able to have a procession, but we intend to keep most of the established elements of Carnival. What is certain is that we will provide a FREE family fun afternoon from 1.00pm to 5.30pm, using both the Squares in The Village, with stalls, entertainers, live music, bar and BBQ, in addition to the existing providers in The Village. For the children there will be rides, bouncy castles, arts and crafts workshops, a duck race and fun activities in the play park next door.

The Shopping Village is easy to get to walking from Wilton town centre or Warminster/Kings Road A36 and there is plenty of car parking via the main A30 entrance.

So, book the date now – Saturday 6th July 2013 * 1.00pm – 5.30pm.

STALLS – TABLE SALES ONLY – The Shopping Village retailers will be open as usual but all stalls are welcome.

Being a new event we will be promoting this widely in the coming months. The Shopping Village who advertise regularly in the local press, will be including our event, plus banners, handouts and posters, so we are expecting large crowds. We hope to bring back our established audience plus summer visitors to the Village and attract many more to this Carnival event.

There is room for around 30 tables in The Village. The supplied tables will be standard 6’ X 2’ included in the price of £15 each. Most of them will be under cover with the possibility of an additional marquee.

Please Note: There is NO CAR BOOT SALE this year and it will not be possible to bring your vehicles on to the site or to put up tents and gazebos. We think a table stall sale will attract great interest from a wider public. Trolleys and cages and help will be available to transport your goods from the coach park. Further details will be sent on request.

If you would like a stall please contact Susan Nunn. 01722 501776
