Class Registration (registration is now closed)
NO STROBE LIGHTS ALLOWED ON ANY ENTRY
All entries into the motorised classes will need dedicated float safety marshals. It is your own responsibility to supply the correct amount for the size of your float. This is a safety requirement and any entries without sufficient float safety marshals will not be permitted to enter the procession.
Float safety marshals will wear visible plastic tabards (supplied at the carnival field) and walk alongside your entry to ensure that no one gets close to the wheels or can fall under the float.

Pewsey Carnival can arrange and pay the premium for Public Liability Insurance (PLI) for entrants in classes 2-5. Entrants are welcome to take out their own PLI but please note this on the application form and bring a copy of the insurance to the carnival field on the night. Class 1 entrants are unlikely to need PLI due to the low risk they pose, but are welcome to provide their own PLI.
Classes 1 and 2 are judged at the Carnival field.
Classes 3-5 are judged on the route by carnival veterans. You will receive a judging number at the Carnival field (big florescent number to attach to your float). All results from the motorised classes will be announced at the closing ceremony on Sunday 18th September. Please make sure you give your name and phone number when registering your entry.
