Tarporley Carnival 2015

Welcome to Tarporley and to our 2015 Summer Carnival!  We have chosen a Nursery Rhyme theme this year to give everybody the opportunity to dress up!

This is our 23rd Carnival and there is a lot on offer to entertain you. The High St Parade starts at 12.30pm and the grand opening in the field behind the Community Centre is scheduled for 1.25pm.

In the arena we have the Pipe Band, two fantastic displays by Mad Mountain Bikes and the opportunity to try out four  Segways provided by Cheshire Segways based at Blakemere. Mad Mountain Bikes will also be holding stunt riding workshops during the course of the afternoon. Roll up, roll up!

In the marquee we have the Jazz Band, the very popular Decibellas Ladies Choir and the Tarporley Primary School Choir.

The side shows include a Climbing Wall, a Punch and Judy, a Stilt Walker and a Circus Skills workshop - all of which are free of charge. There will also be the usual amusement rides.

To keep you well fed and watered we have the Beer Tent, Pimms Tent, Tea and Cakes Tent, Barbecue stall, and Ice Cream stall.

All the above amounts to an exciting and enjoyable afternoon, so get stuck in and enjoy yourselves!

Tarporley Guide 2015

This Brochure contains an eight page guide to the 60 or so clubs, organisations, associations, schools, churches etc., active in the village. It’s worth keeping the Brochure in case there is some activity in the village you would like to know more about or get involved in. Newcomers are always welcome!
