BRIDGWATER Carnival organisers are celebrating after finding out it has been awarded a grant of over £29,000 from the Arts Council England, for the second year running.
Chris Hocking, Bridgwater Carnival’s development officer and committee life member, expressed his delight at the news.
He said: “This is absolutely fantastic news for everybody associated with our carnival, and I would like to thank Arts Council England for their much needed support and for recognising the role our carnival related activities play in the development of arts in Somerset.”
Five separate educational carnival projects have been arranged this year for children to participate in and acts already confirmed include Bloco Du Sarjento Pimenta from the world famous Rio de Janerio carnival.
