Awful weather tries to put a dampener on Carnival

Have your say

The weather may have been awful but that didn’t stop crowds of determined residents turning out for Crawley Carnival.

Downpours turned Southgate Playing Fields into a mudbath over the weekend, meaning some of the acts lined up for today (May 26) were unable to perform.



But Chris Cook, of organisers Crawley Lions, said a couple of hundred pounds had been raised so far for local causes.
