The past two years have seen a fantastic resurrection in New Mills Carnival with a combination of hard work by a fantastic committee, closer collaboration with other New Mills groups, great support and backing by New Mills Council, businesses and traders and most of all the way everyone in New Mills and beyond embraces New Mills Carnival weekend.
This year keeps the same successful formula from last year with the parade starting from Market Street at 1pm on 13 June led by New Mills band with street entertainment dotted around town – just prior to the parade there is a 5 mile race along Market Street, Union Road, Peak Forest canal and back through the Torrs finishing outside the carnival parade ground at the Rock Tavern pub.
This years parade is already longer than last years and with even more vehicles, again with great support from our local schools and businesses.
Once on the parade ground you’ll find the place packed to capacity with Howard Town Brewery and their beer tent, Some great choices of food, lots of local traders and groups with market stalls and a very busy parader area with entertainment throughout the afternoon.
The fairground will be bigger than last years with a big Ferris wheel for the first time we can remember in New Mills.
