Back Otley Carnival 2014


Press release from Otley Carnival 16.5.14

 As the date of Otley Carnival nears, those wanting details of the entertainment on offer on the 21st June will be able to get all the information they need from the Carnival programme which is now on sale at Otley Library and at many local shops. Proceeds from the sale of programmes will form part of the donations given to the beneficiaries of the 2014 Otley Carnival, who are Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Otley Action for Older People and Otley Children’s Centre.

Once again children from all local primary schools were invited to design a cover for the Carnival Programme and many excellent entries were received, from which the Judges, Mrs. Barbara Towers of Otley Arts Club and Mrs. Judith Tomlinson, picked their favourite in each age group. The overall winner was Olivia Driver aged 9 from The Whartons Primary School, who received a trophy, a book token and a tee shirt donated by Colourfusion bearing a copy of her design. In addition to the overall winner adorning the front of the programme, all the age group winners will be able to see their artistic efforts reproduced in miniature in the programme.

 Attached are:
