Preparations for this year’s Arnold Carnival – which takes place on June 16 and 17- are now underway, with a host of big entertainers already confirmed for the big day.
The annual free event returns to Arnot Hill park with a line-up including live music, dance, arts and crafts activities, a fun dog show, fun fair, BMX and skateboarding sessions, a memorial flypast and more.
Meanwhile, a host of big name tribute acts have now been lined up to entertain the crowds during the two-day event.
The events kick off on Saturday, June 16, with headliners THAT 80’S ROCK SHOW performing some of the biggest 80’s glam and hair-metal rock classics and power ballads from bands such as Def Leppard, Kiss, Whitesnake and many others.
Sunday’s headliners will be bringing the stadium rock to the park with performances from Queen tribute act Real Magic and Take That and Robbie Williams tribute Take@That.
Along with performances from professional musicians, there will also be a variety of community music, dance groups, local school bands, choirs and solo artists performing over the weekend.
The carnival has more to offer besides music, with over 150 craft, charity and trade stalls and a dedicated food and drink court with a fully licensed bar.
