Andover Carnival says Goodbye to Carnival Royals and Ambassador

Andover Carnival says Goodbye to Royals and Ambassador as no longer able to sustain the competition

Andover CarnivalRecently, the carnival Royals celebrated the end of their duties with a meal provided by The Folly Pub. Our young Royals performed their duties with great enthusiasm and have memories to cherish. For Iris Andersen, Royals’ Ambassador, the time has also come to finish a magnificent run.

Iris has spent countless hours over the years as chaperone, escort, security and organiser for the competitions, Carnival procession, shop and business openings and much more.  Many young people benefitted from her support and encouragement as well as local business and the community.

Regretfully, with diminishing resources and the huge legal, safety and security issues, the Carnival can no longer manage the requirements and responsibility for the Royals.

We will still have our wonderful events in the park and the procession which gets bigger and better each year and 2019 will be no exception. Look out for the announcement of our 2019 charities which will be announced shortly.

We look forward to welcoming visitors on Sunday, 21st July 2019
