Hanwell Carnival Saturday 21st June 2014

Our theme has been chosen - Musical Hanwell.

Hanwell has a long and proud musical tradition. The Hootie last year proved that music is in our blood not in our past. This theme is bound to be vibrant and noisy - the perfect companion for a carnival.

So the theme has been decided, the date set and the Royal family recruited for 2014.

The judging took place on Saturday 8 March and the panel had a tough time choosing from a very competitive field of candidates.

This year’s queen is Helen Schilli Somjen, the princess is Lucy Bridges and the prince is Sukaran Vaid. They will lead the procession as it makes its way through Hanwell and will also be treated to a bit of pampering, befitting of those with blue blood.

Mayor Councillor Kamiljit Dhindsa, the Mayoress and Jane Harrison from the Ealing Gazette were the judges.

The Royal family is just one of the many ways to get involved in the Hanwell Carnival.

It is run by the community for the community and the organisers want more people to get on board. 

The carnival needs volunteers to help in the run up to carnival and on the day itself, whether you want to sponsor one of the attractions, parade in the procession or show off your culinary skills in the new artisan food tent.

If you would like to register your interest or suggest some new ideas, please have a look at our get involved page.
