Our chosen theme for the 2015 Morecambe Carnival is: Fairy Tales! This theme was suggested by Heysham High School.
The carnival theme is a traditional part of the carnival parade for float entries. If you have your own idea or float theme that’s great! However floats entering under the official theme will be competing for The Arndale Shopping Centre Cup awarded for Best Themed Float. There are many other awards up for grabs and we hope to add more prizes to the current line up for MC15. Remember the more creative and imaginative the better!
