Shambles CC is based in Shepton Mallet, Somerset. We take part in the Somerset November Illuminated Guy Fawkes Carnivals, which parade around the streets of Bridgwater, Burnham, Weston Super Mare, North Petherton, Shepton Mallet, Wells, and finally Glastonbury. We also enter the Midsomer Norton Carnival. Please see the Carnival Dates for 2024
Many people ask, “why do we call our carnival floats, carts.” That is because these Somerset attractions were originally built on hay carts and pulled by horses.
New Members always welcome
As well as the obvious, needing cast to dance on the cart, building and fund raising is a very important part of the club, so any one with artistic, model making, painting, electrical, metal and wood working skills are more than welcome. Please do not let this put you off as tea making and clearing up behind some of those messy workers is also a very important job, and most of all, the fund raising. So if you would enjoy putting any of these skills into action, come and join us, we are a friendly bunch and work as a team to build a fantastic cart.
