Grantham’s Royal family will look a little different this year, with a Carnival Queen at the helm of the popular parade.

To mark the 30th anniversary of Grantham Carnival, the Royal cortege will be extended to include a queen sitting alongside the Carnival Princess.

Come on ladies...and have some fun!
Roy Wright, carnival chairman

It’s a chance for mothers and daughters to enter together, or even grandmothers and granddaughters, aunts and nieces, and share the experience of leading the carnival parade through the town on Saturday, June 20.

And it’s so easy to enter. Simply go to the online form - it takes just minutes to complete. You will be added to the guest list for the selection event and will receive an email with further information.

Carnival chairman Roy Wright said: “The carnival has, for 30 years, been about community togetherness and this new and exciting way of chosing our leading ladies will, I feel, make that togetherness more meaningful. Come on ladies...and have some fun!”

Another change this year is in the way the Carnival Queen and Princess will be chosen. Gone are the pressures of dressing in the glitziest gown you can find and standing on stage to answer questions in front of a panel of judges and an audience.

Instead, entrants will be invited to a relaxed, informal afternoon event, venue and date to be confirmed, where there will be a bite to eat and the chance for hopefuls to mingle and chat. Judges will wander around and speak to each Queen and Princess hopeful and the winning pair will be announced.

Not only will the Carnival Queen and Princess lead the carnival parade on June 20, they will win a haul of fabulous prizes.

**Entry terms and conditions: Entrants must live in the Journal news coverage area and be available during the Grantham Carnival weekend of June 20-21. Carnival Princess hopefuls must be aged between 10 and 15 to enter. There is no upper age limit for Queens! Entrants can be mother and daughter, grandmother and granddaughter, even aunt and niece.
