BROMSGROVE Carnival has been cancelled for another year due to uncertainty of Covid restrictions.

The popular event, which is held at Sanders Park was due to go ahead in July but has been cancelled for the second year in a row because of 'emerging data and the uncertainty on restrictions.'

Timberhonger 10k, the road race that accompanies the carnival, and the children's fun run has also been cancelled.

A spokesperson from Bromsgrove Carnival said: "It is with regret that Bromsgrove Carnival Committee, along with our partners at Timberhonger 10k have decided to postpone this year's events due to uncertainty with the relaxation of coronavirus restrictions in the coming months.

"We recognise the importance of responsible event management and although there is likely to be some room for an event of a small, restricted size, with the emerging data and the uncertainty on restrictions we feel the very essence of carnival and Timberhonger stand for would be lost.

"In light of this, the committee would like to thank the public for their patience and welcome participants, businesses and the community to get ready to come together, come forward and show Bromsgrove what it's been missing for the last two years.

"We look forward to working with our named charities in July 2022 and will release a date as soon as we can."

In 2019, the last time Bromsgrove Carnival was held, carnival floats, marching bands and walking groups graced the streets of Bromsgrove on July 13. 

The parade started at North Bromsgrove High School then worked its way to Sanders Park which was filled with a funfair, stalls, and a music stage. 

This Morning star and renowned brummie, Alison Hammond, judged the parade's floats from the music stage 

Local athletes then tackled the charity Timberhonger 10k, supporting Primrose Hospice, Libby Mae’s Little Angels, and the Midland Air Ambulance.
