Saturday 28th August – Lavenham Carnival and Rare Breeds Motor Show

12 noon to 6pm.

Lavenham Rare Breeds and Car Show 2016

The Tropicalia Samba dancers and drummers are booked and the hilarious and flexible, Abigail Collins, returns to perform in character as Garden Veranda (her very own take on Carmen Miranda).

Join in the festivities and follow the colourful procession, which leaves the Market Place at 12noon, and leads the crowds to the Recreation grounds. Come along and… 

  • View the Rare Breeds Motor Show display, the Hilly Ridge Alpacas and Samba workshops
  • Enjoy land zorbing, archery, bungee trampolining, bumper cars/boats and an inflatable assault course
  • Visit the Children’s activities tent for clown magic, balloon twisting, face painting, and arts and crafts
  • Peruse the numerous craft and charity stalls and taste the sumptuous food and beverage offerings
  • Or simply sit back and enjoy the various acts and displays in around the main arena and performance tent
