Floats & Walking Groups

We would still love to hear from any groups, organisation or businesses who are interested in putting a float or walking group into this years procession! Submitting a float or walking group is free, all you need is a completed risk assessment and your own liability cover - groups without their own liability cover can pay a small fee (less than £50) and be insured under the Carnival’s own insurance.


In previous years local businesses such as transport and scaffolding companies have helped groups out by offering free services such as safety barriers for floats and even the vehicles themselves.The procession this year is likely to form up in the grounds of Amesbury Abbey, along Salisbury Street past Lloyds bank and Aldi, across into The Centre, Earls Court Road and up Antrobus road before finally heading into the show ground in Holders Field on Holders Road. 

Please see below for copies of the entry forms to participate in this years Carnival Procession.
