Children’s TV through the ages is the theme for this year’s Burwell carnival which will this year be held at the recreation ground for the first time.

Organisers say they have had another amazing response from local groups and businesses and have float entries including Bob The Builder, The Smurfs, The Flintstones and The Simpsons.

There are marching groups in place who will add to the annual colourful spectacle.

The carnival is part of the Isle of Ely Arts Festival and has a special festival tent where there are additional activities like poetry reading and storytelling.

There is an eclectic mix of entertainment throughout the day both off and on stage with displays, music, street style entertainment, games and funfair rides.
