‘ROCK AGAIN, EMILY’! This is the title of St Mark’s ‘Emily Float’ – a replica of Emily the Organ ingeniously constructed by Dave Walker and Paul Whewell, to be borne along on a trailer at TWO Carnivals :
FARNHAM CARNIVAL PARADE and FAYRE – Saturday 30th June.
The Fayre is in Gostry Meadow – 2-9pm – live entertainment and refreshments.
The Parade starts in the Upper Hart Car Park (just above Waitrose) at 6pm, and winds round the town through the crowds, returning to the Hart at 7.30pm.
The theme of Farnham Carnival is Rock and Pop Legends, hence ‘Rock Again, Emily!’ We hope to have wacky organ music coursing through her ‘pipes’!
The Emily float will make another appearance at the –
HALE CARNIVAL on Saturday 7th July. The judging will start at the Hale School Field at 5.15pm. The Procession begins at 6pm, and proceeds down the hill on to the green. It does just one lap of the green. This is a smaller event than the Farnham Carnival, but just as important, and it is our ‘local’ Carnival.
The money collected in the Carnival buckets will be distributed among many good causes. And one is the beautiful Edwardian Emily who so deserves a thorough restoration. Then she will fill St Mark’s with glorious sound again.
