Record-breaking Newbury Carnival draws 14,000 to town

 RECORD numbers attended Newbury Carnival, with organisers estimating 14,000 people flocking into the town throughout the day.

The streets were packed up to five deep as the specatcular parade wound its way through the town.

Pirates on stilts, the Reading Scottish Pipe Band playing the stirring Scotland The Brave and Newbury’s Royal British Legion Club’s amazing float and the amazing spectacle of the Rampage Mas Band, were among the highlights.

But the biggest accolade of the day went to John Rankin School for Peter Pan and Cpt Hook - the judges, including Newbury Weekly News editor Andy Murrill, voted them overall winner of Newbury Carnival 2015.

Newburytoday.co.uk was there all day - and we’ve got hundreds of pictures of your kids who visited out carnival HQ.

Make sure you pick up a copy of this week’s Newbury Weekly News to see them, the results in full, plus pages of pictures.
