Hosting will be provided by Jammersley Entertainment with Search for a Star winner and George Formby tribute act Joe James Thomas providing some of the entertainment!

There will be entertainment from local groups in the arena, inflatables, children’s rides and even a chance to get your hands on some exotic animals with Animals in Hands.

And luckily we don’t have to wait four years to witness (or perform!) inspirational sporting performances in the next Franklic Games – it’s back this year!

A spokeswoman for Frankley Carnival said: “It is the highlight of our year and a time when the whole community comes together.

“The event is organised by the totally voluntary carnival committee, led by chair Linda Coates. Each year the whole team give many hours of their time to make the day a real treat for local families.

“Like all our other events throughout the year the aim is to be affordable for everyone. There is no entry fee and all rides, refreshments and activities are priced as reasonably as possible. We can only do this thanks to grants that boost our takings on the day; chief amongst these is from New Frankley in Birmingham Parish Council.”

Event details

  • What: Fun, entertainment, games, stalls – for all the family
  • Where: Green space next to Frankley Health Centre, New Street, Frankley
  • When: 11.30am-5pm Saturday 9th September

The spokeswoman added: “Whatever the weather does, we will be there to celebrate our community.”



  1. I took two young friends to the Carnival on Saturday. Enjoyed ourselves, despite a rainstorm of almost Biblical proportions. Everything was either free of charge, or very reasonably priced. I particularly enjoyed the drumming session that my young friends took part in.
