Watford Observer: Plans for Kings Langley Carnival unveiled Plans for Kings Langley Carnival unveiled

Organisers have unveiled plans for this year’s Kings Langley Carnival.

The village carnival, which is being held on Saturday June 21, will featured more than ten on The Common during the annual event.

The headline act for this year’s carnival is a Texas Rangers Wild West Show.

The announcements were made by the Rotary Club of Hemel Hempstead - the organisers of the Kings Langley Carnival and they are confident there is the right blend of activities for this year's carnival.

Martin Horsted, Rotary member said: "We are very pleased to be able to present another packed afternoon of free entertainment for all the family on The Common.

"We are confident that our Wild West Show and some great supporting acts together with the usual mix of traditional funfair and craft, charity and food stalls will once again prove to be a winning formula for both villagers and visitors."

The Wild West show will return to the Kings Langley Carnival after an absence of 14 years and will be performed twice, at 1.15pm and 3.30pm.

Other events include the return of the dog show, an archery demonstration and a petting farm.

Kings Langley School Jazz Band, Kings Langley Community Choir and Kings Langley Primary School Choir will be on stage throughout the afternoon.

Other groups performing at the village carnival include: Vivo d’Arte Theatre Company, Kings Langley Brownies and Skehill Academy of Irish Dancing.

Councillor Ron Smith, chairman of Kings Langley Parish Council said: "The day always goes well. We always get lots of visitors, which is good and we can get local people together, along with local businesses which is good.

"It is a great thing for the village. It gets everyone together. We are just hoping for a dry one this year.

"If it is wet, people still turn up, but they do not stay as long, but if it is a Spring Summer afternoon, people will stay there all afternoon."

All the money raised throughout the event will be given to local charities and last year more than £5,000 was raised and split between 16 charities.

The arena will be set up for family games such as "Gladiator Pillow Wars, Penguin Fishy Fling and Mini Hoppers."
