Illuminated float at Frome carnival

Frome Carnival is an exciting annual spectacle with illuminated floats, music, majorettes and more. And it’s growing as more local groups get involved and with the added feature of street entertainment during the day.

The Carnival is a registered charity and raises money every year for local groups and individuals in need.

Anyone can take part in the Carnival – it’s not too late to get involved, either in the processions or as a volunteer. There are lots of opportunities so please get in touch: info@fromecarnival.org.uk / 01373 451088
