Carnival Committee News

New to Carnival 2017 - Rope Wars 28 Mar 2017 Eynsham Carnival this year will feature a Tug of War competition - will you be entering?!

THE NEW EYNSHAM CARNIVAL committee are keen to revive some of Carnival’s lost traditions. The origins of the carnival in the 19th century were in a village sports day and the 1939 Carnival featured a Tug of War, 6-a-side football, bowling for a pig and Aunt Sally!

So this year we are presenting Rope Wars, a knockout Tug of War competition on the field on Carnival day, Saturday 1st July 2017. Do you think your Club/Group/Business or Band can beat the rest of the village? Get involved and sign up your team of 8.
