Hove Carnival takes place this year over Spring Bank Holiday on Monday, May 28, from 11.30am to 5pm.

ORGANISERS are hoping for sunshine and clear skies at the popular family event which raises money for the Martlets Hospice.

As usual there will be a variety of entertainment in the main arena including performances from The Black Eagles Acrobatic Show and The Mighty Smith.

Coastway Vets will be running their ever-popular dog show throughout the day including categories as Cutest Puppy, Most Talented Dog, the Waggiest Tail and the Dog the Judge Would Like to Take Home!

Elsewhere in the park there will be plenty of stalls to choose from, along with children’s entertainment, amusements, fun fair rides, cake stalls and rides on Hove Park’s miniature steam railway.

Antonia Shepherd from the Hospice’s Events Team, said: “Hove Carnival is our chance to celebrate our very supportive community.  It’s always a calendar highlight that marks the start of summer. 

“There will be something there for everyone; it promises to be a wonderful afternoon of fun for all the family.

“We’re hoping to raise lots of money again this year to support the care of our patients and their loved ones during some of the toughest times in their lives.”
