Biggleswade Carnival truly arrives with a real splash this weekend!

The main week of events includes the popular Duck Race at the Dan Albone car park off Shortmead Street on Sunday.

It’s a great family fun afternoon. Buy a plastic duck, and if yours paddles the short course along the river the fastest you win cash prizes!

Ducks are on sale from the carnival stall in Biggleswade Market Square on Saturday morning - and on the day from 12.30pm.

The first race is at 2pm and there are also stalls, games, a barbecue and mini disco.

Before that is the Whimsical Quizzical fun quiz at the Gardeners Arms pub in Potton Road tomorrow night (Saturday). It’s a fun night with lots of prizes and entry is just £2 per person. Arrive around 7.30pm for an 8pm start.

The week continues with three events at Biggleswade Social Club in Church Street, formerly the Working Men’s Club.
