Bloxwich Carnival Royalty 2010: Rosebud Holly Arrowsmith, Queen Jessica Jones and Princess Jessica Watts (pic SW)
Dateline: 15 April 2011
2010 Bloxwich Carnival Queen Jessica Jones's crown will be up for grabs soon as organisers set about finding her replacement to play an all-important role in the village’s big day and the coming year. And her entourage are also being sought!
The 2011 Bloxwich Carnival Queen, Princess and Rosebud will be selected on Saturday 21 May at St. John's Methodist Church Hall, Victoria Avenue, Bloxwich at 1.30pm.
Young ladies aged between 16 and 24 are invited to impress the judges and continue with all the good work that has been done by reigning carnival queen Jessica, who will certainly be a hard act to follow!
Selection will also take place for a carnival princess aimed at 11-15-year-olds and a carnival rosebud aimed at seven to ten-year-olds.
Previous holders of titles are not eligible to re-enter for the same categories but may enter another group provided they qualify by age.
The results will be published in The Bloxidge Tallygraph along with photographs of the new queen and her entourage.This year’s Bloxwich Carnival, which is supported by Walsall Council, is set for Saturday 6 August 2011 and will take place at King George V playing fields as usual. As last year, there will be no carnival procession, due to health and safety restrictions.
Organisers say that Bloxwich Carnival is one of the biggest in the West Midlands and it’s an event that attracts thousands of people.
