Durrants are pleased to announce we will be sponsoring this year’s Diss Carnival and Fun Day taking place throughout the town on Sunday 3rd July.
The Carnival is back with a bang this year after an enforced break due to the Pandemic and we are happy to support the town’s comeback event which organisers are promising will be a party to remember.
The theme for the carnival is “The Great-Diss Showman” tying in with The Corn Hall’s Diss Elephants art project, which itself is inspired by the legend of Madame Abdella, one of two circus elephants said to have been buried under Fair Green.
Claire Keen, Diss Carnival Committee Chair, said: “We’ve decided that Diss needs something to look forward to, to celebrate and enjoy. I can’t wait to see the town covered in bunting, the shop windows colourfully decorated, and, for me, the atmosphere in the town when the parade passes through is exhilarating.
“We’re hoping the parade and shop window displays will be bigger and better than ever for our comeback carnival and will include everything from circuses and funfairs to characters from the musical ‘The Greatest Showman”, helter skelter rides, dodgems, fortune tellers, clowns, strongmen and women, acrobats, lions, tigers and even dancing bears!”
As well as joining in the fun, Durrants will have a stand at the Carnival Fun Day where you can meet members of our team and find out about all the services we provide from our Diss office. We hope to see you there on 3rd July!
