If you are planning to watch the Procession as it passes through our Town, please keep to the Public Paths. The procession marks to the start of our Carnival and will take approximately 1 hour to reach its final destination of Whitchurch Primary School. We hope you enjoy the Procession and please support and cheer on all the participants that have worked extremely hard to put their entry together. The Procession parties will be collecting money for either the Whitchurch Festival Funds or their own personal charities or groups, so wherever possible please give generously, it means a great deal to all of us involved.
