Carnival Royalty

2024 Carnival Queen, King and Attendants

Congratulations to our 2024 Carnival Queen and King: Georgia Watson and Rikki Freeman, and Attendants: Lucia Halsey, Skyla Leach, Matilda Clarke and Edward Enright.

Eynsham Carnival Family Disco

The election of a Carnival Queen, deputy and attendants is an age old tradition that goes hand in hand with Eynsham Carnival proceedings. Since 2017 boys are also invited (and encouraged) to enter and in 2024, our first ever Carnival King has been crowned with the Queen. The Carnival royalty head up the parade and preside over carnival day, awarding the parade, fancy dress and shirt race prizes.

The carnival royalty are elected at Eynsham Carnival Family Disco, typically held in March. There are 3 categories for candidates: male or female attendants aged 6-9 and 10-14, King and/or Queen aged 14+. Candidates are selected by independent judges, and it is not necessary to parade to enter the competition. No need to apply in advance, just turn up on the day.

The disco takes place from 6.30-9pm in the Village Hall, and there is no obligation to enter. Come along and bring the family for a dance and a few drinks! Entry is £1 per person with a licensed bar.
