Held in Burrs Country Park in Bury, the carnival will open from 4pm - 9pm, with the audience entering on timed tickets. Full of spectacle and wonder, this is a show not to be missed.

Rachel Lees

Countryside made and countryside raised, Rachel fortunately finds herself on Dorset’s wild Jurassic coast. Here she's likely to be found foraging in a hedgerow, writing in her favourite cafe, or with her head poking out a sleeping bag under the stars. She reckons the best of things are absolutely free, and in between wombling around the countryide she gives fighting for justice a good go by freelance writing for international development charities.
