Bright lights, fancy-dress, catchy music, and above all... fun! This is what springs to mind when you think about carnivals.

You would be forgiven for believing that monochrome pictures from the Sidmouth Herald archive would be unable to convey this to the viewer, but you’d be wrong.

These spectacular pictures from the 1983 procession are as energetic and fun as the day they were taken. The costumes and floats might have changed considerably over the years, but the spirit of the night remains the same.

This month, Sidmouth once again prepares to welcome the many dazzling floats and costumed walking entries as the carnival makes a return.
