Wellington Carnival 2016   Leave a comment


wellington-cvl-2016

All the images we took in our home town of Wellington in Somerset, UK. The weather was fin except for about 20 minutes of fine drizzle which in no way did it spoil the Carnival parade. This year we had visiting troupes from Les Rochal`Twirl in France also, a group of masqueraders from Torres Verde from Portugal. Hundreds of people lined the streets to watch the spectacle, as they do every year and, Wellington is just the first of the South Somerset Federation of Carnivals, the next is in the town of Ilminster, then the town of Chard and finally in the County town of Taunton. It all moves on from there to Bridgwater-Burnham On Sea-Weston Super mare-North Petherton-Midsomer Norton-Shepton Mallet-then the UK`s smallest city of Wells culminating in the Grand Final at the ancient city of Glastonbury.

HONITON – Devon – CARNIVAL 2015   Leave a comment


5 Honiton Carnival 2015

Today the Heikoworld Photographers crossed the border from Somerset To Devon for a final time, Well, for a couple of weeks. We traveled a distance of 16 miles to the town of Honiton, famous for it`s Lace and Pottery, the position of Honiton is a lot higher than where we are in Somerset, so after many weeks of dry conditions we had a little rain in the afternoon but it did not last long enough to spoil the Carnival.

The Carnival started at 7.30pm on time and, was a Wonderful procession, there were thousands of people lining the streets and they cheered and clapped all the entries. 

We even remarked what a Great Show it all was, it was loud and very colorful, there were lots of young people entering and from many towns all over the Devon County and Somerset. Some of the entries were serious, some were in the comic class, and there were lots of walking and pairs walking, from Pac Man through to children`s feature and what I would call `Classic Carnival` it was rounded off with the final entry from Gemini Carnival Club, they are a “Tableau” that means everyone on the float has to stand motionless, this year Gemini depicted Scott of the Antarctic named “Scott`s Terra Nova” it was immaculate with lots of snow and ice, wonderful model dogs and the bow of the ship Terra Nova. Top of the night “From Me” has to go to Honiton based K9 Carnival Club with their entry HERO.

CHARD CARNIVAL 2015   Leave a comment


3 Chard CVL 2015

Chard Carnival 2015, We were there at 2.00pm in the afternoon, we met the chairman of the Chard Committee Andy Chant and everything started from there, we spoke to an amazing amount of people, how long they had been in Carnival, why they do it, but, most of all the answer came out “We Have To Keep Carnival Alive”, it is fun for us and we entertain a lot of people, but I think most of all they will say is, their parents and their grandparents have been in Carnival, so they aim to keep the tradition alive. Now I will agree with that, if you have never seen this “Spectacle” you should, a whole years work goes into making their ideas work and come alive, hours and days of work to entertain thousands of people and, raise money for charity at each town they visit. Well Done To You All. 

Also well done to the many people who actually organise each event in every town, individuals giving up their time and effort to make all of this work. 

The town of Chard this week, like all towns have to put up with road closures, noise and litter but, everything goes well and ends in smiles and thank you`s.

ILMINSTER CARNIVAL 2015   Leave a comment


2-ILMINSTER CVL 2015-2

Welcome to Heikoworld and, this week we are in the small town of Ilminster, we have moved about 20 miles from our home town of Wellington where last week was the first of the South Somerset Federation of Carnivals, today in Ilminster is somewhat different as the town is a lot smaller and has narrower roads, it is not without its pitfalls, last year some ignorant drivers decided to park on the narrow road and caused a 1 hour hold up, it would have cost them to get their car out of the impound.
Today the Carnival started on time at 7.15pm and everything went smoothly. BUT, you can see we have posted pictures of Eclipse Carnival Club half way through the procession a problem occurred with their tug, so in the interests of safety and not wanting to hold up the procession they decided to pull out, why do we have pictures then, simply because we are at the start of the procession.
All went well from there, Harlequins Carnival Club were the last in the procession and stunned the crowd with their entry, three of the guys were at the front in a small boat, not only did it sway from left to right it did a 360 degree turn with the men in it, even we had never seen that in carnival before.

WELLINGTON CARNIVAL 2015   3 comments


0-Wellington CVL-BANNER-2015

 

Well it turns out we made the right banner for the start of the 2015 Carnival starting at our home town of Wellington.

The weather was Fantastic all day and ended with a sunset just before the start of the procession. The whole evenings entertainment got underway on time, We were as usual chasing up and down the road trying to catch all the entries, I found I had a flash problem with batteries, so I missed a couple of entries I had to change and trash the old batteries as they had swelled up. Enough already of my hard luck stories.

The whole event was an absolute success, no problems with all the entries, just a few teething, irritating things like Light Bulbs, remember, this is the first night out and small problems will occur. 

The people lined the streets in some places 10 deep, they cheered and applauded everyone who took part, even we gave a thumbs up to everyone. What a great start to the Somerset Carnival Season. There are more to follow, next week it all moves to the small town of Ilminster, then to Chard and for this first round to the County Town of Somerset – Taunton.

We will be covering them all and posting the images here.

Wellington Street Fair 2015   1 comment


Wellingtob Street Fair 15

 Sunday 7th June 2015 is the annual day of the Wellington Street Fair, it is organised by the Wellington Carnival Committee with the proceeds going to the Carnival Committee to help towards the cost of being able to put on the Wellington Carnival in September.

Wellington is the first town in the South Somerset Federation of Carnivals, this year the date is 26th September starting at 7.00pm, for the next three weeks it is followed by three more towns, being ILMINSTER, CHARD and TAUNTON.

For anyone who does not know the reason why or what the reason is for the Carnivals it is to celebrate the Failure in the year 1605 of the Gunpowder Plot by Guy Fawkes and his men who tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament and kill the King.

Today got off to a wonderful start, the weather was lovely, wall to wall sunshine, the Wellington Majorettes marched out into the main street and at that moment a Bi-Plane flew low across the sky with a smoke trail and, from there the day proceeded as planned with stalls of all descriptions, face painting, hog roast, singers and dancers, bouncy castles, well, something for everyone. We were shocked as we had never seen so many residents and visitors to Wellington.

Below is a number of views of the day`s events. We support the Street Fair as we also support Carnival, take a look through this web site and you can see we visit most towns Carnival.

We usually visit 11 Carnivals and spend 10 hours at each town, that’s dedication, AND Support for All the Carnival Towns.
