No carnival for Castle Vale

For the first time in almost two decades, Castle Vale will have no carnival or Party in the Park this year. Instead, there will be a week-long schedule of events, the Castle Vale Community Games, which are scheduled for 31st July – 4th August.
Castle Vale’s annual carnival was organised for many years by Bob Brueton. At its height, it drew in thousands of visitors from across Birmingham.
In recent years, it was scaled down, and moved from the Farnborough Road site to Centre Park, where it became a music-based festival of local talent.
Last year the event was organised by local volunteers from the Castle Vale Events Committee.
