City to host festive carnival

Have your say

A PARTY specialist has announced plans to bring a carnival to Sheffield this Christmas.

Festive planners Best Parties Ever will host a Rio Carnival-themed party at Ponds Forge in the city centre from November 30 to December 22. It comes following the success of last year’s bumper car event, which attracted thousands of visitors.

The centre will be transformed into a Brazilian paradise with tropical decor, carnival dancers and acrobats, along with a colourful procession and samba drummers.

The firm has already started taking bookings from local business and groups for this year’s party, which will raise cash for city charity the Whirlow Hall Farm Trust.

A spokeswoman for Best Parties Ever said: “After entertaining over 145,000 guests last year, we are bringing an early present to Sheffield with the announcement of this year’s new theme.”
