Contest to find new Burnham and Highbridge Carnival Queen extended

Organisers of the annual competition to appoint this year's Highbridge and Burnham-On-Sea Carnival Queen and Princesses have extended the entry period for the contest following a low number of entries.

Burnham-On-Sea Lions Club's search for this year's Carnival Queen and Princesses has been extended until Sunday July 15th.

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

All contestants must live within six miles of Highbridge or Burnham and be available on the evening of this year's Carnival, Monday 12th November.

One of the organisers of the competition, Andrew Bryant, told "We would like a few more entrants to the competition so have extended the entry period to July 15th and look forward to receiving more entries over the coming days. We had a total of 11 by last Saturday."

The Carnival Queen and Princess Selection Evening will be held on Saturday 21st July starting at 6.45pm with judging at 7.15pm at Burnham's Princess Theatre And Arts Centre. There will also be an interlude with dancing from Highbridge's Lucy Gunter Dance Centre. Admission will be £4 for adults and £2 for under 16s on the door. Tickets are available from the box office at the Princess.
