THE dates for the Saffron Walden Carnival 2014 have been announced.

Round Table, organisers of the ‘eight-day weekend’, has revealed the popular community event will return on July 4-12, 2014.

Carnival chairman Jason Thomson said: “After the huge success of the last ‘8 day weekend’ in 2011, where over £50,000 was raised for local charities and projects and an amazing time was had by all, I’m hoping everyone will be keeping July 4-12, 2014 free for the unique festival of fun and first class entertainment.

“Following the recent news of the common car park plan not going ahead, we thought it was time to let everyone know what to book as

holiday for next year to support the biggest event we have in our community.

“The procession sees the whole town come out in force around the four-mile route, and last carnival had over 120 groups taking part.

“We’ve even been approached about the time of the largest procession in the area due to a wedding happening on the first Saturday in July.”
