Click For HomeClick for last year

Dover on Saturday, 4th.July.

A very successful day The Court and crew won a total of 4 awards.

The first prize with trophy for Queen of Queens, awarded to Hastings Queen Lara, was an outstanding success. Dover is, for COURT presentation, probably the best in the South East,so you can imagine that all awards are very highly acclaimed.
Hastings full Court won 3rd.prize; the tableau also achieved a third; and our two 'Chaperone's Children', Essie and Alex, won a 'one-off' award for their participation at all events for their enthusiasm,beauty and continued support in joining the money collectors throughout the processions.

First procession of the season.

The weather was dry but a bit cool. Lara,Zoe and Victoria all said that they'd enjoyed their 'introduction' to Carnival parading and were looking forward to Dover on the 4th.July.

Very well received by everybody, our Queen and Princesses looked absolutely stunning in their full Carnival regalia.


Saturday, 16th.May
Federation of Independent Carnivals.

AYLESHAM  near Deal, in Kent.  A  closed coal mining community who hire/loan out their old club rooms for many events;nice large auditorium/dance floor usually with a vast stage...as you can see in the photos.

The FICA 'do' is for Court and Committee 'crew', whereas other Town Carnivals only the Court should be 'judged' as you might say. The court and crew at this event won 3rd.Prize for the fancy dress;  Deal came first, and Folkestone 2nd. It was a close thing.

Court are; Queen, Lara Duke, 1st.princess Zoe Waters,  and 2nd princess Victoria Lavender.
