Balsall Heath Carnival is rapidly approaching and this year the theme is ‘Butterflies, Bees, Bugs & Blooms’. This year carnival organisers have joined up with ‘Balsall Heath Britain in Bloom’ to achieve a gold award. Combining the two events promises to bring a riot of colour to Balsall Heath through floral displays at all of the schools and there are plans to decorate the area with individually painted cut outs of butterflies. With the promise of support from local housing organisations, schools, community groups and passionate individuals this year’s range of events looks like being spectacular.
Balsall Heath Carnival July 6th
Racing around Balsall Heath on the day of the Carnival will be the annual procession which doubled in size at the last carnival and this year promises to have representatives from all of the local schools. If you are interested in entering your group into the procession this year, booking a stall, performing on the main stage or volunteering then why not contact the Carnival Co-ordinator Clive Phillips on 0121 464 4376.
