Carnival Returns!

September 19, 2014 1:31 PM

Pageant Master Dave Cooper and Stephen Lloyd, Patron of Eastbourne Sunshine Carnival announced that Carnival will be returning on Saturday the 30th of May 2015. The popular event which this year celebrated its third year running with estimated crowds of over 20,000 people lining the route was one of the highlights of the summer season.

David Cooper said "I'm really pleased to announce that Carnival will be retuning, and I've written to all of last year's entrants to tell them to put the date in their diary! This year's Carnival was a great success. We raised more money than ever before and the atmosphere was just sensational. I'm really delighted to be the Pageant Master for the fourth year running and know from speaking to last years entrants that they are looking forward to lining our seafront again and meeting the best Carnival crowd on the South Coast!"

Stephen Lloyd MP added "It's a real privilege to be patron of such a community focused event. I was determined in 2010 to bring back the Eastbourne Carnival and was delighted at the support that the event had on its return. I'm part of a superb team led by Dave Cooper, and assisted by Andy Holter, Rupert Ashford, Angelo Errigo, Cllr. Alan Shuttleworth and Steve Holt and we are already discussing ways of ensuring that Carnival 2015 will be bigger, and better, than ever before".
