                       THE PROCESSION.

  Burnham-on-Crouch Carnival is one of the most successful carnivals in the South East, this has not only been achieved by the hard work of the carnival committees over the years, but also the wonderful Tableaux and fancy dresses in the Grand Illuminated proccession.To keep this up we require as many Tableaux as possible, there can't be too many. Get together and start thinking of ideas for this year, organisations, families, Streets, Commercial, individual! It doesn't have to be a forty foot trailer, it can be any size, any shape, serious or down right silly. Can you make the crowds that line the streets of Burnham laugh or go WOW! You will most certainly enjoy the experience, and there are various trophies to be won on the night, and a prize of £250 for the best Tableaux in the Procession.

 

 

   More good news. You do not require a generator for your lights any more, you can simply plug an Inverter into your cigarette lighter and this will give you the required 240volts. Just go to http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/maplin-12v-modified-sinewave-300w-inverter-with-usb-charging-socket-n66ju
