Carnival Funfairs love to travel to new places, and also love to travel to old places too, but this winter we found ourselves in Hong Kong for the fantastic European Carnival from November to the Chinese New Year on February 19th and the celebrations right through until 22nd. Here is a fabulous photo of the event, and a good time was had by all! So Gong Hey Fat Choy from all of us (Happy New Year in case you wondered)

Normally Carnival Funfairs travel no further east than Colchester for the wonderful military Tattoo, but this year we are carrying on a bit further and sailing to Hong Kong for the Great European Carnival, to be held from December 2014 to February 2015. We are still all at sea, as is normal for us really, but here is an image of the press launch and there will be more to follow once we are fully open.

We are absolutely certain that everyone who reads our website news stories, should such a person exist, is very well aware that there is a great Christmas Festival in London each year running once again from November 21st through to January 4th. Now we are delighted to tell you about another, in one of the other great capitals of this United Kingdom, and that is Edinburgh.
Running over the same period from November 21st to January 4th, is the Edinburgh Christmas Festival featuring the giant Sky Wheel that will offer the best views of this historic city you can find. This is an event not to be missed and fortunately you still do not need a passport to go from England to Edinburgh to enjoy this, or to change your money into Euros! So this is a capital opportunity not to be ignored.
We are barred on Southbank every summer!

During the wonderful summer, soon to fade from our memories no doubt as we shiver despite global warming, we took our Carousel Bar and dropped it on London's Southbank for the magnificent summer festival there.
Hundreds of thousands of visitors, young, old, tourists, Londoners, tired and ultimately emotional businesspeople, all came and not only enjoyed a pie and a pint or something similar, but great and wacky entertainment. This collage may give an indication of some of the fun, but join us next year to enjoy more. Better still, visit the Carousel Bar in Winter Wonderland in the meantime, and best of all do both!
Wheel Meet Again

Our GIANT Ferris wheel will tower above the city centre as the centrepiece of Edinburgh’s Festival for the first time in its history. So forget the Fringe, the Tattoo and the rest, ride our wonderful wheel and see it all.
The colossal attraction – standing at 42 metres – will offer “unrivalled views” of a bustling Capital at the height of the festival season and even air clips from must-see performances into each of its 36 pods.
The big wheel is identical to the one featured at Edinburgh’s Winter Wonderland and will be fixed at the same location next to the Scott Monument.
The fee paid for placing the wheel in Edinburgh at this key time is being ploughed into maintaining monuments at Princes Street Gardens.
Capital residents – with ID to prove their EH postcode – will secure a 20 per cent discount on the £8 fare.
Up to 216 short extracts from headline shows featured in the Jazz and Blues Festival, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, International Festival, Fringe Festival and International Book Festival will be broadcast in the six-person pods.

Sometimes famous celebrities can get a reputation for being above themselves, but beautiful Tulisa has a personality as lovely as she is as we found out when she visited our great value funfair at Clissold Park in Stoke Newington. Happy to chat to the adoring public and pose for photos with our staff we hope she had a great time as she certainly made our day! Thank you Tulisa, a star in every way.
Great Autumn Day at the Dockside

IN 1971 David Gates wrote the first line of his famous song, saying "If a picture paints 1000 words", well we think this picture paints 1000 words about 1000 years of local history which is why we wanted to share with you this photograph of the Dockside Festival, organised by the London Borough of Newham, in September. Wonderful festival and what a great venue, a mix of London's history with the 21st century and lots of great food and entertainment capped by a superb firework display.
From the photo you can see the dockyards, food store of Britain for centuries and site of great resistance to bombing in World War II, alongside the wonderful new homes shared by all sections of our multi racial community. Well done Newham who continue to recognise and support the importance of community festivals to bring people together and make them proud of their home town of London.
