Thame’s annual carnival was a fantastic success with thousands of visitors from Thame and surrounding towns and villages all coming to see the fantastic efforts of Thames great businesses, schools, community groups, and charities as they all celebrated the Mardi Gras! The carnival also received a special guest… Peter Andre and his team did not disappoint on the day, woo-ing the crowds and getting into the spirit of things in a bright suit and Mad-Max wig. Peter Andre was in Thame filming his programme Here to Help for ITV2 . Although the programme misrepresented the town, and it’s protrayal of the previous years event was inaccurate, Peter Andre did pull in many more helpers for the organiser, Nichola Dixon, and also spread the news to a national audience.

The joint efforts of our community, the organisers, and a little help from national TV, created a fantastic day out for everyone, and we hope our video showcases the highlights of the day.

We are very excited about next years carnival, which we are sure will be bigger and better than ever before! Keep your eye on for updates about next summer’s carnival, or search for Thame Carnival on
