In photos: 2012 Burnham and Highbridge Carnival Presentation Night

Carnival clubs from across Somerset gathered together for the annual Highbridge and Burnham Carnival presentation ceremony on Saturday night (February 4th).

The event, held at Laburnum House in West Huntspill, saw over 40 trophies and cups handed to the winners of last November's procession by Carnival Queen Jenny Yip and Carnival Chairman Phil New.

Pentathlon Carnival Club received the main trophy, the Phil Harris Memorial Bowl, for the best entry in the entire Burnham procession after their stunning cart 'Overthrow of the Tsar' impressed the judges.

Members of Burnham's Hillview Carnival Club, pictured right, received five awards for their cart 'One Way Ticket', including the silverware for the best local entry.

And Jamie Hawke, Burnham Carnival Committee's outgoing chief marshall, was awarded a special trophy, the Ben Travers Challenge Cup, by the committee members (pictured above) for his work in showing "the true spirit of carnival".

Chairman Phil New told "Saturday's event was a great evening when clubs from across Somerset came together to look back at a super carnival. Everyone is now looking forward to this November's carnival."
