Fakenham Carnival

Postby StevieJacks » 18 Mar 2011, 02:06

A bit far out of Lynn I know, though broadly in the area; does anyone have old photos of Fakenham Carnival, which ran until about 1989/1990. Kick Start Fakenham put on a precursor to a Carnival last August - the Fakenham Fair - and we are hoping to include a Carnival procession in this year's festivities, so any pictures of processions and the like from before would be great, thanks.

Fakenham Fair - The Fakenham Carnival - continues with more success every year. Regular meetings on the 1st Tuesday of every month, Fakenham Community Centre, Oak Street, from 7pm with extra meetings as the event in August approaches. Any help is always appreciated, plus as I've said before memories/photographs of past town Carnivals and celebrations. You can contact me via this site, email kickstartfakenham@hotmail.com or send pitctures/memories via the Fakenham Community Archive group. The Archive is separate from Kick Start and they are keen to preserve memories and photographs not just of past Carnivals in the town but other events, people, streets and surrounding villages. The archive is well worth a look via a search or from their facebook page.

You can also contact Kick Start via our own facebook page and separate website for anything regarding the town.
