Bridgwater Carnival

Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival – the UK’s oldest carnival and one of the largest illuminated carnival processions in Europe.

Held annually on the first Saturday in November, this carnival takes place in Bridgwater, Somerset.

The Carnival Concerts will be back to back to entertain you in 2022.

The Carnival Concerts act as a great warm up for the clubs for their dance routines and choreography before the main Carnival event and runs for 12 nights, in 2022 from 3rd October until the 15th October (excluding Sunday 9th October). The Concert is itself a great spectacle, each night always sells out and has a prestigious local following.

Between the main acts provided by the 13 carnival clubs and 2 dance troupes that participate we have “front of curtain” acts that fill the time with music, singing and magic tricks to entertain the audience whilst the main acts change their scenery.
