This year, the Carnival was hosted by BBC Radio's Jason Dean and Meridian's Fred Dinenage.


The theme of Nursery Rhymes was the order of the day and featured The Wessex Military Band; The famous original "Plonkers" Agricultural Orchestra; The Funky Little Choir Company and a variety of Street Entertainers.


Our charitable donation this year was made to:
