Site Overview

Bakewell Carnival, Live Entertainment, DA Float!

This is going to be one of our best meets of the year, with a lot of focus on live entertainment and the carnival. In 2019 the DA took part in the carnival for the first time and won best float - we'd like everyone to get involved with building the float at this meet. We've titled the float theme "Absolutely British", so its time to dress up in line with this theme, bring out that bunting, union flags and celebrate Britain in the year of the Queens Platinum Jubilee. Bring your home made creations and share them on our facebook page for inspiration to others.

We'll be having live bands entertain us throughout this meet with a festival atmosphere.

FRIDAY
Live entertainment from the amazing...
Duo Foster Brothers
https://www.facebook.com/TheFosterBrothers/

And......
The brilliant Good Vibrations

SATURDAY
Join us in the carnival fun...
Come and help us decorate the trailer ready to enter the carnival.
Our theme this year is ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING BRITISH So if you dress up it will be even better!!
When we return from the carnival we have another evening of great live entertainment from-
Rhythm 3s https://www.facebook.com/Rhythm3s/
Lucy Bradley https://www.facebook.com/lucybradleymusic
And the amazing Treble Fours https://www.facebook.com/thetreblefours/

Free festival face paint for children on Saturday afternoon (times to be confirmed) hopefully volunteers step forward to help the existing volunteer.

The site itself couldn't be more central/closer to Bakewell. The show ground has the river Derwent running through it and crossing the river over the bridge takes you into the town centre.

This is going to be popular meet, so please make sure you don't forget to book!

Click the w3w address above to see the site location on the map, from there you can start navigation with any of the below apps using your phone or mobile device.

Approaching the site - As we are now using what3words to pinpoint our sites, navigation should be much easier and accurate. However to help spot the site as you approach, we place signs to let you know you are close by and to help guide you. Site entrances can be hard to spot so we also try to put a feather flag at the entrance so you don't drive past.
