Whilst the procession is assembling in the morning there will be a road closure in place along Pavilions Way from the Chequered Flag roundabout up the hill to the junction of Martial Daire Boulevard so that the procession can assemble safely. During this time there will be a diversion in place which will use the Pavilions Way> Martial Daire Boulevard> Pavilions Way route. Once the procession starts 11am there will be a rolling road closure in place and once the end of the procession has left Bracken Leas School the road will open up once safe to do so.

The road closures will be managed by NORTHANTS 4X4 and residents in the area will be advised in advance. We will limit the time the road is closed to a minimum  and accommodate where possible access to residents. However safety of the children and residents is paramount and vehicles will not be allowed to areas which are occupied by pedestrians.

Local bus services have been advised in advance and please check with the various operators as to any changes which may be made. We thank you in advance for your patience.

Procession route to Carnival site: Magdalen Collage School, St Johns Site, Brackley, Northants NN13 7AD


Once the Procession has reached St Johns Site, the Procession will follow the marching band down onto the middle field and into the Main Arena. Any vehicles taking part within the procession will peal off at the top field and be asked to park in the ‘procession parking area’ in the top field as usual. The procession will wait in the Main Arena to take part in the Opening Ceremony, the band will then play the National Anthem, (to celebrate the Queens Birthday), and finally the presentation of prizes including The Cover Competition, Shop Window Competition and the Procession Prizes will be announced. After this the band will strike up and will lead the Procession back upto the Top Field in the ‘Procession Area’ there they will be free to dispurse and enjoy the rest of the days events.
