This year’s Monmouth Carnival was a fantastic success, thanks to all those people who made such brilliant costumes and took part, and to those who turned out to support them.

On behalf of the Monmouth Carnival Voluntary Group I would specifically like to thank the following organisations: Monmouth Town Council; The Big Lottery Fund; Monmouth Rotary; Monmouth Lions Club; Monmouth Gymnastics; Olá Samba; Samba Galêz; The Fire Service; Des and Oliver (judges); St Thomas’s church; Shire Hall staff; Monmouth Castle; St John Ambulance; and all the procession participants.

For those of you who missed it, the carnival video can be seen on our website monmouth Please also feel free to let us know your feedback or if you wish to volunteer your help for next year.
