This year will see the first ever Carnival Midsummer Charity Ball, which will take place on Friday June 10th. The tickets were a sell-out, with people desperate to put on their fanciest clothes and enjoy a night of fine dining, entertainment and cocktails. 

But the night is not just about eating and drinking, and the Carnival Committee would like to encourage everyone to nominate someone for Carnival King and Queen!


A modern twist on the Miss Lewis and Harris Competition, the Carnival King and Queen Competition aims to recognise the achievements of local people, male or female, young or old. 

Achievements can be anything from raising lots of money for charity, to getting through a really hard time in their life. Perhaps the person has supported the local community in some way.

Whoever you think deserves some recognition can be in the running to become Carnival King or Queen, and winning a donation to a charity of their choosing.
