Chudleigh Carnival

The annual Chudleigh Carnival took place earlier this summer on Saturday July 21 and drew a large crowd of participants and spectators.

please note Chudleigh Carnival is NOT part of Chudfest, they are 2 seperate organisations! Chudleigh Carnival has been happening since 1973 possible earlier, and chudfest only started in 2006 when chudleigh carnival was unable to take place due to there not being enough people in the committee but returned the following year! It is a great tradition, one we hope to keep going and improve in the year to come! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Chudleigh-Carnival/177664659034305
