Girls…it’s that time of year again!

Her Royal Highness might be celebrating her Sapphire Jubilee this year but that’s nothing compared to the jam-packed year our very own royals have had! They’ve been to:

Wellingborough Carnival, Nuneaton Carnival, Corby Carnival, Irchester Carnival, Irthlingborough Carnival, selection nights across the region, the Miss South Midlands Competition, Newport Pagnell Christmas Lights, Castlemead Care House and Green Park School Fete. And they’re not stopping there – with both the Irchster Gala and Corby Selections to attend before their year is out.

Attending all these events, raising awareness of Newport Pagnell, helping the local community and raising money for charity is what these girls’ year has all been about.

Sound like fun? You bet! If you want to become 2017’s Carnival Court Queen or Princess then get yourself down to the selection evening on Friday 03 March 2017 at Newport Pagnell Working Men’s Club. Full details below:

It was acceptable in the 80s…

1984 might not sound long ago but it’s the year that:

  • The first Apple Macintosh went on sale (core blimey!);
  • Pound notes were taken out of circulation;
  • Madonna was made to feel shiny and new;
  • Snakeskin belts were in fashion; and
  • Prince Harry, Gareth Gates and Mark Zuckerberg all entered this world.

We’re going to party, karamu, fiesta, forever – Come on and sing along…..all WEEKEND long!

Some say three is the magic number, others think two out of three ain’t bad and most agree that one is the loneliest number.

Newport Pagnell Carnival Music StageWell, we’re of the opinion that it takes two baby and that’s exactly why we’ve extended the music stage to two days! That’s right, all weekend long, Saturday and Sunday, we will be bringing you the finest of local, live music, all at Newport Pagnell Carnival – best pack a toothbrush!

First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage…

It’s Facebook-relationship-status official…Newport Pagnell Carnival and MKFM have become partners!

It is said tMKFMhat up to a fifth of relationships begin in the workplace and who are we to go against statistics?! Since the Carnival and MKFM began working with each other, people have talked, rumours have flown and today that love has been formally recognised with an exciting new partnership.

The joining of forces will see local radio station MKFM feature exclusive carnival interviews, news, soundbites and adverts, as well as them hosting and promoting the whole weekend.

And, to make things even more ‘maybe-we-should-buy-a-hat’ official, MKFM will be bringing their brand new tour bus to the Carnival weekend, which features the Carnival logo and mascot, Carni Croc.

So, celebrate love by making sure that 106.3 is tuned into your radio station from Monday 23 May, to hear Niki and Sam talk about the Carnival and that the 25 and 26 June is blocked out of your diary so you can congratulate us in person!
