Sounds of the Samba in 2016

Following the success of Amersham Carnival 2015, Amersham Town Council, Amersham Action Group and Amersham Round  Table are delighted to announce the date of next year’s Amersham Carnival – Saturday 9 July 2016 – and the theme – Rio!

Rio is the scene of the 2016 Olympic Games along with famous fiestas, amazing costumes, samba drums, steel bands and..…     Copacabana Beach! We are hoping that local community groups and schools will embrace the theme and join us for a fun-filled family day!

The steering group are gathering ideas for next year’s fun event – if you would like to get involved, please call Zoe Richardson at Amersham Town Council on 01494 434000.
