24th - 30th June
ADMISSION ON THE DAY
£5 per person
Primary children & younger free
Last year our theme was, “Musicals” and so in the spirit of our
continuing passion for all things connected with music, (after
all it is as much a musical event, as it is a carnival)!
The theme for this year is, “Name that tune”. After the
somewhat dismal spring, I hope the weather will be kind to us.
This year we are simplifying our ticket arrangements on
Carnival day in order to get everybody through the tunnel and
on to the meadow safely and quickly. We are very conscious
that we need to get the procession off Town Street as quickly
as possible. The main hold up has been on the gate where there have
been different tariffs for the young and old alike. This complicates
taking the money and giving change which in turn takes time.
Therefore, it has been decided that there will be a flat charge of £5.00
per person on the day. As in previous years, Primary school children
and younger are free. This is still exceptional value considering you
get a full day’s entertainment! To put this into context it’s the price of a
drink and a biscuit in one of the well-known coffee franchises!
Of course, if you buy your ticket in advance from one of the village
outlets there is a massive saving. The Adult ticket is £3.00 and
Children, years 7-11 in secondary education can purchase their
tickets for £1.00.
Many thanks go to the Carnival Crew who work for most of the year
to bring the week of activities to life in Duffield. Also, thanks to our
volunteers who seem to appear from nowhere year in year out to
help make the week a success. Thanks also go to the Parish Council
who have and remain great supporters of what we do throughout the
year and making it possible for us to use Eyes Meadow, a wonderful
Take advantage of the week, dip in and out of the various events but
most of all have fun!

Princess & Attendants
Our Princess is Emily Westbrook and her attendants
are Corben Marrs and Toby Wilson.
Hi my name is Emily. I’m 10 years old and in
Year 6 at William Gilbert. I live in Duffield with
my Mum, Dad, big sister Charlotte and two
cats Dizzy and Wendy.
I’m so excited to be chosen as Carnival
princess and really looking forward Carnival
week. It will be busy that week for me as I also
turn 11 on the Friday.
I swim every week at Woodlands pool for an
hour and play tennis at Duffield tennis club.
I am also a member of the Duffield guides
unit and help out at the Rainbows unit with
my Mum who is one of the leaders. In my spare time I enjoy baking cakes with my big sister and
making a mess in the kitchen. I also really enjoy Harry Potter and have read all the books in the last
three months! I also love sewing on my sewing machine, Lego and Star Wars.
I hope you are all looking forward to the Carnival as much as I am and look forward to seeing
Corben loves reading
and particularly enjoys
fantasy books such
as the Artemis Fowl
and His Dark Materials
series. He has a dog
called Jeff with whom
he goes exploring and a
cat, called Zombie Bob,
who doesn't do very
much really. Corben's
favourite subject at
school is Science but
he also likes working as
part of a theatre group
at the weekend.
Toby enjoys most
football where he
plays in the U10s for
Duffield Dynamos. He
also enjoys basketball,
tennis, hockey and has
recently started cricket.
He plays these either at
clubs in the village or at
Other things he likes include food (!) nerf guns,
his PS4, Mum's iPad, reading and music
(listening to and playing). He is about to take up
the double bass at school which Mum hopes
he will practise a bit more than the guitar...

forward to a triumphant return to their favourite gig. “We love playing the Carnival. Not only is it
always a good audience who appreciate great live music, but living in the village means Karen
(Lawley, lead vocalist) and I get to see so many local friends.” Said Pete. “It’s a privilege
to play with such great musicians who can turn their hand to anything to suit an audience,
so we’ll be mixing it up with cuts from our Classic Albums Live shows, plus a good mix of
other material that will hopefully send everyone home happy that we’ve played some of their
favourites”. He added.
Expect to hear faithful renditions of songs from artists as diverse as Queen, Pink Floyd, Pink,
Stereophonics, Led Zeppelin, Adele, David Bowie and Fleetwood Mac to name just a few.
A perfect way to round up an exciting week of carnival.

This year’s carnival will be opened by members of Ecclesbourne Trefoil Guild.
The Trefoil Guild is celebrating 75 years since it was formed in 1943. Its founder
members were a group of women who wanted to help their country in wartime. They
gave service in a variety of ways and organised collections together as part of the Girl
Guiding Movement. They purchased much needed equipment such as ambulances,
mobile canteens and even a life boat.
Much later in 1984 Ecclesbourne Trefoil Guild was formed in Duffield comprising
mainly of ex Brownie and Guide Leaders, who had run units in the local district in the
1960s and 70s when there had been a growth in the population.
Today this small Guild continue their links to Girl Guiding by supporting the current
We all feel privileged to have been asked to be part of this year's Carnival - so give
us a cheer and a wave when you see us.

School out costume the inappropriately dressed St. Trinians teams from William
Gilbert? Will the super fi t Duffield Dynamos again out muscle and out dress the

your egg unscathed?
This year we are hoping to extend our array of games by offering a ‘dressing-up’
race. Charge down your lane donning various items of clothing on the move. This
should be an exciting spectacle for those of us watching, and great fun for those

Headline act this year sees a return to Carnival for The Sensational Hot Rocks band after a 3
year hiatus whilst they have been out performing their Classic Albums Live shows.
Voted as ‘The Best rocking party band in the Midlands’ last year by a poll of promotors and
gig-goers, band leader and Duffield resident, Pete Schofield says the band is looking forward
to a triumphant return to their favourite gig.
“We love playing the Carnival. Not only is it always a good audience who appreciate great live
music, but living in the village means Karen (Lawley, lead vocalist) and I get to see so many
local friends". Said Pete.
“It’s a privilege to play with such great musicians who can turn their hand to anything to suit
an audience, so we’ll be mixing it up with cuts from our Classic Albums Live shows, plus a
good mix of other material that will hopefully send everyone home happy that we’ve played
some of their favourites”. He added.
Expect to hear faithful renditions of songs from artists as diverse as Queen, Pink Floyd, Pink,
Stereophonics, Led Zeppelin, Adele, David Bowie and Fleetwood Mac to name just a few.
A perfect way to round up an exciting week of carnival.

Welcome to Duffield Carnival
The Carnival Crew, groups, individuals and businesses of Duffi eld have come together to stage
the Duffi eld Carnival; not just a day but a whole week of events. Contributions to the Carnival
take many forms including time, money, skills and resources for which we are very appreciative.
The Carnival Crew stitch it together, but without the Community as whole it wouldn’t happen.
Carnival week promises to be a busy one, as you will have seen there is something every day
of the week, events catering for the whole spectrum of the village.
Carnival Day itself starts with a bang as a Batala band leads the procession through the streets
of Duffi eld. We hope that the fl oats will be as stunning as previous years. New “fl oats” are
always welcomed, they don’t need to be on a vehicle or have loads of people, just something
eye catching and evoking the theme “Name that Tune”.
This year we are changing the entry fee; after 1200 on Carnival Day tickets and entry to Eyes
Meadow will be a fl at £5 per person for all except for primary and infants. This will speed up the
process of admitting people to the Carnival Field.
Our ticket sales mean we can hire the marquees, equipment, toilets, acts etc. Not forgetting
Security costs which were new to us last year and will be incurred again this year. We will be
operating a policy of random searches for substance abuse and underage alcohol. Apart from
funding the staging of the Carnival week, your entry fees are the main means of generating
funds for the Duffi eld Community Association which invests those funds back into the village.
Feedback from recent years has been a preference for several small-scale entertainments as
opposed to a “main” act. As a result there will be plenty of things happening on the day (bands,
dancers, circus skills, sports, village games, Punch n Judy, village games, with an emphasis
on both participation and entertainment. This year there will be more local food outlets on
the meadow during the afternoon and evening. The Crew has worked to provide you with
entertainment from 1pm to 9pm.
Last year rain was averted on Carnival Day by the Crew’s strategy of dancing
naked at dawn on Eyes Meadow. We will repeat this on the fi fth Friday in May
at 6am, all are welcome to join us – no cameras please.
The Carnival is ever evolving in small ways, this is healthy, however it should
extend to the make-up of the Carnival Crew itself i.e. to keep things fresh. We
welcome new crew members with their ideas and dynamism to continue the
popularity of the Carnival. If you want to be part of the Carnival Crew (unpaid,
underloved, undiminished) and put on this year’s Carnival or plan next year’s
event then, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
