Something for the weekend – Glossop Carnival

For something for the weekend this week, there’s only one suggestion and that’s the Glossop Carnival weekend taking place in Glossop’s Manor Park.
Hopefully the sun will be shining and there will be thousands in attendance to enjoy the fund packed weekend that has been together by the Glossop Arts and Leisure Association.

As well as all the usual stalls, rides, ice cream, side shows and a variety of refreshments, this year’s entertainment will also see the Tameside Sea Cadets, with a rigging display, Falconry Life live birds of prey, Glossopdale Community College Big Band, along with Arnfield Brass Band, a vintage car show and the annual duck race.

From the details in the Glossop Chronicle (which I’ve not seen elsewhere on line so far), it all kicks off on Saturday at 11.45 when High Peak Mayor Stuart Young will open the event with a presentation of cheques to local charities and organisations.

For Saturday – The Tameside Sea Cadets will be performing at noon, 2pm and 4pm, Falconry Life will be on at 12.30 and 3pm, Glossopdale Community College Big Band at 1pm and 2.30pm, Centre Stage Dance School at 1.30pm and 3.30pm.

Registration for the RSPCA Dog show is from 1pm till 1.30pm with entry been £2 per class or 3 classes for £5.

For Sunday – Tameside Sea Cadets will be performing at noon, 2pm and 4pm, Falconry Life at 12.30 and 3pm, Arnfield Brass Band at 1pm and 2.30pm with Dynamite Dance at 1.30pm and 3.30pm

Sunday will also see a veteran and vintage car show – with anyone welcome to enter their vehicles which must be at the park by 10am, with judging taking place during the day prior to the trophies been presented at 2.45pm.
