Aylburton Carnival

Saturday 15 July 2025

To volunteer

The Hall and Playing Field are entirely funded by voluntary donations.

The Carnival is a HUGE contributor.

We receive NO funding from local authorities or national government

COVID-19 had a serious impact on our funding.

We are entirely run by volunteers.

The first recorded village carnival was 1917, and we are still going strong. We think it happened before 1917, but our current trustees can't remember.

Carnival 2025 will be on Saturday, 15 July 2025

Remember, the A48 High Street will close for 30 minutes from 1300 for the procession.

As usual it will start with the procession through the village on the A48 (High Street) and continue on the field with the usual stalls, bar, barbecue, sports and a Fun Dog Show.

The floats will leave the Taurus car park at 1.00pm and the walkers will join them at Millbrook Green.

Prizes for the best floats are £100 (Bleddisloe Challenge Cup), £75 and £50. There are also prizes for the walking entries.


2023's judge was the Venerable Pete Watkins.

2024's judges were the Honuralble Mike & Shirley Gerrish.

On the Playing Field there will be many attractions including a pig roast, grand draw, Punch and Judy, bouncy castle, bowling, classic vehicles, teas and a bar. The Forest of Dean Brass Band will once again be entertaining the crowds with traditional music.

The Family Fun Dog Show will be going on all afternoon followed by children's races.

There will be a band performing from 5 until 7pm.
