Search begins for this year's Burnham and Highbridge Carnival Queen

The search is on for this year's Highbridge and Burnham-On-Sea Carnival Queen and Princesses.

Organisers from Burnham-On-Sea Lions Club have this week kicked off the annual hunt to find this year's contestants.

The competition is once again open to girls aged 16 or over for the position of queen, and to youngsters aged 7-15 for the princesses.

All contestants must live within six miles of Highbridge or Burnham and be available on the evening of the Carnival, Monday 8th November.

The Carnival Queen and Princess Selection Evening will be held on Saturday 31st July at the Princess Hall.

The evening will start with a pre-contest briefing at 7.15pm and judging will start at 8pm followed by an evening of entertainment hosted by Russell Dyson with music provided by local DJ Paul Hale. Admission will be £3 on the door.

The winner of the competition will become the Highbridge and Burnham Carnival Queen accompanied by two Princesses.

The Carnival Queen will be asked to attend events throughout the year, including the presentation of trophies to the winning Carnival Clubs and the presentation of cheques to those charitable organisations that assist the Carnival.

To have the opportunity of winning £300 as the Carnival Queen or £100 as a Princess, get your entry form now by calling 01278 792534. The deadline for entries is Friday 16th July 2010 and the entry fee is £10.
