Wells Carnival is coming back with a bang, offering around 100 activities ranging from quizzes to a teddy bear picnic.

Most of the action will take place at The Maltings, The Buttlands, Gordon Barrett Memorial Hall and Wells Town Football Club.

The traditional summer carnival will have a procession with floats and a fete day, as well as a food and craft fair. Others things to do include a sandcastle contest and a town crier competition.

Furthermore, the festivities will also feature the crowning of this year's 'Carnival Royalty'. Applicants for the king/queen positions must live or work in the Wells area. 

Locals and visitors can also expect a range of live music and film screenings.
