Town carnival set to make a comeback?

A CARNIVAL could be returning to Daventry for the first time in 15 years, it has been revealed.

Daventry Business Partnership, (DBP) is looking for an ‘artist in the community’ to head up plans for a carnival parade this summer.

This will be the focal point for the final day of the Daventry Arts Festival due to be held from July 16 to 23.

The festival, a joint venture between the DBP and Field Day Arts, has received funding from The Arts Council, Igniting Ambition and Northamptonshire County Council.
