CHARD Carnival organisers have announced a new sponsor for this year's festivities, The Devon Truck Show.

The Devon Truck Show is an annual show at The Showground, in Honiton which raises funds for local charities and community groups. This year's show will be collecting for Chard Carnival.

With Live Music on both nights, Stunt Shows, Monster Truck Rides, Food Stalls, On-site Bar, Merchandise and so much more it becomes a weekend away! Also offering some of the cheapest weekend camping tickets in Devon during Spring.

This year's Chard Carnival will take place on Saturday 8th October 8 but a lot of events are planned throughout the summer to raise money to be able to run the carnival. Keep an eye on all the events via the Chard Carnival website, or follow them on their Facebok page.
