Somerset Carnivals
Somerset Carnivals
  • Description

Visit Somerset in November and you must be prepared to witness one of the world’s best kept secrets – for the county can boast the largest night-time carnival processions anywhere in the world. Approaching a million spectators gather to witness these giant parades, the spectacular all-electric light shows with the performers swaying rhythmically to the sound of blaring music.

Historian Roger Evans explains the origins and evolution of the winter carnivals, explores the contemporary circuit with Bridgwater Carnival at its heart, and discusses each of the major carnival clubs from the British Flag Carnival Club, Bridgwater, to the shambles Carnival Club, Shepton Mallet.

Illustrated with over 100 photographs, many in colour by renowned photographer Peter Nicholls, Somerset Carnivals is destined to become the standard work and fans’ bible for decades to come.
