FLOATS, fancy dress and family fun were all on the menu at the Titchfield Carnival.

More than 5,000 people packed the village’s High Street, which was lined with stalls and amusements.

The carnival, which is run by the Titchfield Bonfire Boys Society, took place for the 201st time this year.

Committee member Liz Kelly said she was thrilled with the public’s great response.

She said: ‘It had been getting smaller for some years but now it’s growing again and today’s carnival has been great.

‘It’s a fun family day and the fact that it’s been going for so long shows how important it is to Titchfield.’

About 100 classic cars went on display and there were two parades through the High Street.

The processions included brightly-coloured floats, marching bands and groups of cheerleaders.

Many of the floats had themes which covered everything from Halloween to Middle Ages knights to the Minions movie.

A series of antique steam engines were also part of the parade.

Ms Kelly said: ‘We hope it will be even bigger and better next year.’

The carnival raises money for groups including the village’s Community Luncheon Club, Titchfield Primary School and the Sea Scouts.

The event was part of commemorations happening in Titchfield this year to mark the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt.

The village was a central location for the assembly of the archers prior to leaving for battle.

Henry V stayed at Titchfield Abbey on his way to France prior to boarding the ships in Southampton.
