All manner of fun at carnivals held in Martham over the years and we’ve stepped back to our picture archives of 2002, 2004 and 2005.

One thing applies to all the pictures everyone is smiling enthusiastically whether taking part in activities or watching the procession. Do you recognise anyone?

And the event continues to this day - this year’s is from June 29 to July 1 on Martham Green.

It is described by organisers as “A weekend of fun for the whole family! A variety of stalls to browse, delicious food and drink, live music and lots more entertainment for all ages to enjoy. We have a fun packed weekend planned. It’s definitely an event to pop in your diary! You don’t want to miss this!” See Martham Fun Carnival page on Facebook.
