Besi Besemar March 23, 2013


The Martlets Hospice, a charity providing end of life care to adults with terminal diseases, will be co-organisers of this years Hove Carnival, which takes place Monday, May 27, at Hove Park from noon.

Alongside Hove Lions, the hospice has organised all your carnival favourites, including a fair, Punch & Judy shows, swing boats and a Big Top, which will feature a programme of local bands.

The main arena will have a rolling programme of events, including a falconry display and the annual dog show. Visitors will also be able to get up close to other animals including owls, donkeys  and a cheeky goat called Ruby.  For younger visitors worried about their own cuddly animals, St John’s Ambulance will be on hand running a Teddy Bears Hospital.

Railway lovers will be spoilt for choice as Hove Park’s miniature locomotive will be running.

Pick up golfing tips from the experts at Lewes golf club or get your hands dirty planting up pots with Mayberry Garden Centre.

For Hove’s master bakers there will be a chance to show off in the ‘Bake Off’ tent, and there will be stalls offering crafts, homemade produce, things to see & do, and refreshments.

The finale of the carnival will be a memory balloon release. Each balloon will be £2 and you can add your own message.

Tickets for the Big Top are £2 from the Fringe website, or £2.50 on the day. All proceeds will be split between the organisers.
