About Us:

Shambles Carnival Club has been based in Shepton Mallet since 1987. In 2015 due to a fall in membership the club changed from tableau class to feature class, it is now all singing and dancing and Shambles is now thriving. We are building a 100ft illuminated cart to participate in 8 local town November processions. These provide an enthusiastic group of members of all ages, to meet several times a week, giving opportunities to team build, be artistic, and learn how to make models, build with wood, choreograph, and work with electrics, metal and many more skills. The overall cost of this is over £20,000 a year and the club is continually out and about working hard to raise this. The Somerset Carnivals are a much loved family tradition and gives the community something bright and colourful to look forward to during 3 weeks of dark, cold, winter nights. 

We need your help Please

  1. To save on our expenses by buying all LED light bulbs. At the moment we use about 8000 ordinary household light bulbs, this will cost us about £12,000 to change them all. By doing this we can reduce the generator size to power them, thus also reducing our fuel and hire bill and being more environmentally friendly.

  2. Also Shambles shed we meet and build the cart in, is in desperate need of roof repairs it is leaking badly. The 100ft lean-to roof needs to be completely re-sheeted at an estimated cost of £3000.

We thank you very much for your support and good luck!

Yours Sincerely,

Mr John Davis
