CARNIVAL-GOERS are set for a musical treat this weekend.

There will be an eclectic mix of marching bands at Titchfield Carnival bringing music to villagers’ ears.

Big Noise Community Samba Band from Gosport will be getting the village into the groove with their traditional Brazilian samba-reggae.

The Rose and Thistle Pipe and Drums band will be playing traditional Great Highland bagpipes and Scottish side drums.

The Meridian Corps of Drums will be marching to the beat.

The St Andrews Pipe Band from Hamble will also be in attendance.

The Bournemouth Carnival Band, famed for wearing superhero costumes, will be treating the crowds to their unique blend of fancy dress, theatre and music.

Finally, no carnival would be complete without the Royal Navy marching band and HMS Collingwood Volunteer Band will be there in full glory.

The carnival will culminate in the beacon lighting on Barry’s Meadow at 8.30pm.

Titchfield Carnival starts at midday tomorrow.

It is free to attend, although the suggested donation is £2 per person.
