Leighton-Linslade Carnival is a firm favourite in the calendar of local social events.
The highlight of the event is the procession, comprising of float entries, both walking and on decorated lorries, that passes along a designated route through the town.
Usually the procession ends at Parsons Close Recreation Ground, where the winners are announced and the fun and enjoyment continues with a funfair, stalls, music and dance displays, food and drink stands and much more.However, due to Covid this will not be the case in 2021 – we hope to be back to normal in 2022.
A collection is also made along the procession route, which is always generously supported by local people. Funds raised by Carnival are distributed to charities and community groups - in 2019 over 40 groups shared £6000.
Because of the distancing difficulties, this year we are encouraging donations online or by text. Please support us as generously as you can.
We look forward to bringing Carnival to everyone for many years to come, with the continued support and participation of all those that have come to love this event every year.
