Brazil comes to Bucks for the Amersham carnival
PEOPLE will be able to experience the sights and sounds of Brazil but in Bucks at a carnival next weekend.
Excitement is building for this year’s Amersham Carnival and Town Show being held on King George V Playing Field on Saturday, July 9.
Amersham Action Group, Amersham Round Table and Amersham Town Council are again joining forces to put on this year’s event following the success of last year’s revived Carnival and Town Show. The event starts with a vibrant Rio themed procession leaving from the King George V field in King George V Road, Amersham, at noon, taking in a route of Amershamon-the-Hill before returning to the field at about 12.45pm for a family fun day out.
There will be a host of activities including a live music stage, barbecue and beer tent, central performance arena, Amersham in Bloom Horticultural Show, a 400 strong balloon race, community and charity stalls as well as a fairground and the ever popular Amersham beach, which this year takes inspiration from the world famous Copacabana beach.
Zoe Richardson from Amersham Town Council said: “We look forward to seeing you all on the day!”
