THORNBURY CARNIVAL TICKETS NOW ON SALE

Tickets for ‘Swing in the Park’ on Friday 1st July and Thornbury Carnival ‘The Main Event’ on Saturday 2nd July are now available to purchase via the Thornbury Carnival website.

Liam Williams, Chair of Thornbury Carnival Committee, explained that final plans for both events are coming together well:

“The Committee’s working really hard to pull together the final details for this year’s event – there’s so much going on at the moment, it’s really difficult to know where to start!”

Liam said he was delighted to announce that the Carnival’s nominated charity for 2022 is the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC), and that members of GWAAC will be attending the event over the first weekend in July, collecting donations to support their vital work. GWAAC will also be showcasing some of its kit in the ‘Kids Zone’ on the Saturday, teaching open air CPR sessions, and the committee is also keeping its fingers crossed the GWAAC helicopter will be able to do a fly by over the Mundy Playing Fields at some point during the day.

“Talking of flying…,” Liam was also excited to announce that for the first time ever, hot air balloons will be a feature of the event:

“We’ve teamed up with the Western Region British Balloon & Airship Club and we’re hoping to launch 6-10 balloons from the field adjacent to Mundy Playing Fields at around 6pm on the Friday evening. We think this will create a fantastic spectacle to kick off our inaugural ‘Swing in the Park’ event, weather conditions permitting of course!”

Back on the ground, as well as the Main Stage featuring an array of tribute acts including Abba, The Spice Girls, George Michael and Queen, Thornbury Radio is planning to do a live broadcast on the Saturday, another first for the event. The Community Stage line-up is also taking shape, thanks to the expert guidance of Elly McDonald, Director of Northavon Youth Theatre Company. Elly said:

“We are so pleased that the Carnival Committee have included us into their event. We knew there had been challenges in recent years but wanted to offer a solution. We got together with the local businessman, Tom Grey, from Big Stage Hire and Loud Hire who provided a stage and sound system. Giving NAPA, TMTG and other local performers the opportunity to be on stage in front of their family, friends and community is absolutely fabulous!”

‘Early Bird’ tickets will be available to buy online at a reduced price until 48 hours before each event. For further information on ticket prices including Terms & Conditions, please visit www.thornburycarnival.co.uk/tickets.
