The Stagecoach South West roadshow team is excited to announce that they will be attending annual carnivals in Barnstaple and Honiton.

Following the success of Teignmouth and Dawlish carnival’s in August, where Stagecoach South West won second and third place for their carnival displays, the roadshow team are looking forward to taking part in two more carnivals; Barnstaple and Honiton.

Barnstaple carnival takes place on Saturday 21 September, with the procession starting at 6pm from North Walk. The Honiton carnival, on Saturday 26 October, starts from Ottery Moor Lane at 7.30pm.

A whole host of organisations will be taking part in the two carnivals, providing free entertainment for the whole family.

Members of the public will be able to spot the Stagecoach South West roadshow team in the procession and meet mascot Gary the Rabbit, who will undoubtedly add to the carnival cheer.

Bob Dennison, Managing Director of Stagecoach South West, said: “Stagecoach South West is delighted to be taking part in the Barnstaple and Honiton carnival processions. The team loves getting involved in these community occasions, and we are looking forward to meeting local people, handing out giveaways and entering into the fun carnival spirit, with everyone’s family favourite mascot, Gary the Rabbit!”
