New attraction at Pershore Carnival 2022
Worcester-based duo back by popular demand
Local band Mel and Him were such a hit with the Carnival crowd in 2018 that we simply had to get them back this year. We are pleased to announce that they will be performing the final set, starting at 5pm.
Mel & Him are a lively, entertaining duo performing hits from the 80s, with a few newer and older classics mixed in. They have been popular on the Midlands music since 2014, when a fabulous school disco-themed party inspired them to take their favourite party tunes out on the road.
Betsy Harmony to sing at Pershore Carnival 2022. Catch her set at 4pm
Having wowed the Pershore crowd at the Welcome Back Weekend last August, Memphis Mike will be returning to Abbey Park for Pershore Carnival 2022. His set will start at 3pm. Get those Blue Suede Shoes ready to be All Shook Up!
i-Sing Choir set to open Pershore Carnival 2022
The i-Sing Choir, led by local musician Helen Jones, will be performing a set on Abbey Park at 10.45am. For more information about i-Sing Choir, go the their website.
Carnival Theme 2022
The theme for Pershore Carnival 2022 has just been announced as
"1952 to 2022: Inventions of the past 70 Years"
This links the theme that had been chosen for the 2020 Carnival, which sadly could not go ahead, with the Queen's Platinum Jubilee being celebrated this year. We know we can rely on Pershore folks to be creative!
