CALLING all queens, Astwood Bank Carnival Committee are looking to complete this year’s carnival royalty.

Members have already interviewed and identified the successful candidates for carnival prince and princess, and are now on the lookout for the 2014 carnival queen, with an application deadline of Friday, June 6.

The new members of royalty will be transported in a horse drawn carriage around the carnival procession route on Saturday, July 12 and will be expected to participate in other events during the year.

The carnival queen applicants should be aged between 14 and 25 and must live within a 10 mile radius of Astwood Bank.

To apply, email a short piece about yourself including hobbies, interests and any other information you feel would help, and attach a photo.

Alison Jones, carnival royalty co-ordinator said: “This is always one of the great privileges and highlights of the carnival year in finding our new members of royalty, and as ever we are expecting some very enthusiastic applicants.”
