Shepton Mallet Carnival 2013
This is the first time I have visited the Somerset Series of Carnivals that takes place in Bridgewater, Weston Super Mare, North Petherton, Shepton Mallet, Wells & Glastonbury during November.
I visited the Shepton Mallet evening and after seeing the carts (They are not floats) my only words

I have never seen such large carts before with so many themes.
Most of the large carts consisted of two vehicles with the lead one being powered.
The size of the double combinations was much the same as modern three axle road articulated trailer with some being additionally powered by a pusher vehicle at the rear.
Interspersed between the large carts were many smaller ones that consisted of dancers, costume clad performers, and much, much more.
It was interesting to note the age range of carts participants was from about six years old to eighty years old plus.
The lighting on the carts was mind blowing with thousands of lights on each and all accompanied with very loud music.
I particularly liked the War of the Worlds cart and music.
All I can finally say is;
If you are able to go to one of the carnivals in 2014 - GO

Gallery 43
Bygones Museum

If you are in the Torquay area do visit this outstanding Past Times Museum at
Fore Street, St. Marychurch, Torquay, Devon TQ1 4PR
With every area of the museum bringing back memories it is very easy to spend ALL day looking at the exhibits.
I can also recommend the Tea Room that provide an excellent Devon cream tea.
The gift shop is well stocked with many tempting items to purchase.
A great day out for all ages.
