Thame Carnival is a family event that is part of most people’s childhood. It’s a parade through Thame Town Centre followed by a fete on Southern Road Recreation Ground.
It’s a day when the Thame community gets together and has a day out through Thame High Street and entertainment and activities at Southern Road Recreation Ground.
This year, the town centre streets will be lined with people watching the “Queens Jubilee” themed procession of floats that travel from Elms Park to Southern Road Recreation Ground, culminating in a traditional summer fete.
Each year Thame Carnival raises significant amounts of money for charities and organisations from Thame and the surrounding villages. Much of the money raised is via each stall being run by the charity themselves. Additionally, the Thame Carnival team selects its own charities to support.
The organisers have been granted a fly-past by a Lancaster Bomber during this year’s carnival.
The Avro Lancaster is the most famous and successful RAF heavy bomber of World War II. There are only two airworthy Lancasters left in the world – out of the 7,377 that were built.
Truly an unmissable opportunity to see one on your doorstep!
