Horley’s Carnival will have a musicals theme this year and organisers are inviting everyone to take part.

The carnival will be held at the Recreation Ground, off the A23, from noon to 5pm on Saturday (June 7).

The main attraction will be the parade, which will set off from Victoria Road car park at 1pm, led by the Redhill Corps of Drums.

Mike George, chairman of the Horley Carnival Committee, said: “In the parade will be a number of floats from local organisations and schools.

“The Caledonian Pipe band will also be part of the parade and we hope to include some historic military vehicles.

“There will be a competition for the best floats.”

The parade route will pass along Massetts Road, Russells Crescent, Victoria Road, the A23 and on into the Recreation Ground.

Mike said visitors could expect to see characters from the Lion King, Cats and Alice in Wonderland among the parade.

Following the arrival of the parade, there will be a children’s fancy dress competition for groups and individuals, which will be judged by Sam Gyimah MP, and the Mayors of Reigate & Banstead and Horley. The trio will also judge the floats.

There will be a full programme of arena events starting at noon, including bands, dance groups and a Rock Choir.
