We are proud to confirm Amesbury is once again one of the main sponsors of the Liphook Carnival. The Carnival is an annual event that takes place on the last Saturday of October each year. Dating back to 1901 the event is a firm family favourite. The evening includes a float procession around the village, street food, entertainment and culminates with a firework display held in Radford Park. It’s a free event, although donations on the night are welcome.

Timings for Saturday 26 October are listed below plus information on putting together your own family/friend/club float.

Access to the procession is via Headley Road and then The Avenue. Please note the top end of the Longmoor Road closes as soon as the first float appears (generally about 4.30pm).
