Excitement builds at Burnham-On-Sea carnival club as big day nears

Excitement is growing at Burnham-On-Sea's carnival club this week as the youngsters who will performing on the town's cart have been holding their final dress rehearsals.

With just hours to go until the start of the carnival season on Saturday in Bridgwater, Hillview Carnival Club's young members onboard the club's float, called Hollywood Hotel, have been proudly showing off their colourful costumes.

The club's costumes have been created by volunteers Lyn Burland and Tina Marshall, who have spent several months stitching the clothes together.

Meanwhile, Hillview's team have been working around the clock to get their cart ready in time for the Bridgwater Carnival this Saturday (November 3rd).

The 100ft long cart has cost £10,000 to build and has been decorated with more than 10,000 light bulbs, as recently featured here. The cart will come home to the Highbridge and Burnham Carnival on Monday, November 12th.
