********** Carnival Walk 10th September, see details below ***********
******* Quiz Night, 1st September!! ******* (see events page)
All ready looking forward to Liphook Carnival which takes place on Saturday 28th October 2017.
The day begins with the children’s fancy dress competition which this year is being held at Liphook Junior School. The doors will open at 11am and we will be judging from 11.30am. We will have lots of other activities including a children’s entertainer, hot drinks and snacks.
The procession starts at 6.45pm when this year’s Carnival Queen, will be crowned by a local celebrity. We have live performances in The Square from 6.30pm onwards. Don’t forget that we then have a free bonfire and firework display in Radford Park from 8.30pm onwards.
Please don’t forget that we have road closures across the village during the afternoon and evening. Longmoor Road will be closed from approximately 4.30pm. The Square, Headley Road, London Road, Portsmouth Road, top part of Haslemere Road and Midhurst Road will be officially closed from 6pm. We endeavour to get all traffic moving again as soon as we can but no later than 9pm. The London Road will be closed until 10pm due to the fireworks in Radford Park.
Liphook Carnival is one of the biggest events that takes place in our village.
It is a real community event which is organised by the Carnival and Bonfire Committee and is enjoyed by thousands of people from Liphook and the surrounding villages every year. The evening is not only about having fun, but it is also about raising funds. All those that take part are expected to take official collecting tins with them and rattle them at the crowds! Every year we make several thousand pounds which we then donate to local charities and organisations within the community.
Anybody can take part, you don’t need to pre-register you can just turn up on the night where you will be met by one of the Committee members or Marshals and given further instructions! See the Schedule page for details about where to be and at what time! On this website you will also find a Categories section which goes into more detail about this subject and there is a Route map which explains the procession route
THE LIPHOOK CARNIVAL WALK – SUNDAY 10th SEPTEMBER 2017
If you talk the talk in support of the Liphook Carnival then why not walk the Walk and help us raise much needed funds to cover the running costs.
We have different routes each year to keep it interesting and this makes it a great way to explore the local countryside. So if you fancy responding to the call of nature as well as the Carnival then READ ON.
This year we have three circular routes to choose from, approximately 3.5, 9 and 11.5 miles, which all start and finish at The Deers Hut pub. The walk will depart from The Deers Hut, Longmoor Road, Griggs Green, Liphook, Hampshire, GU30 7PD at 9.45am on Sunday 10th September 2017, registration opens at 9am in the pavilion at the back. Entry is £6 per adult and £3.00 for under 16’s or it is free if you are sponsored for an amount over the entry fee and for under 6 year olds. There is an added incentive to get sponsorship!!!! We are offering a prize for the highest sponsorship obtained which will be announced on the day. You can obtain a sponsorship form by calling Rob or Alison on 01428 723331 or 07979 803805. The Deers Hut will be catering with bacon butties, tea, coffee etc available before the walk in exchange for a donation (all proceeds going to the Liphook Carnival) and lunches are available afterwards but they strongly recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment. Stout walking boots are recommended of course to avoid injuries and dogs are very welcome. Last year we had just over 40 walkers attend the event and we made approximately £430.00 so this year it would be great to see an even better turn-out.
