With the Carnival coming to Cleethorpes this Saturday 18th July, chief sponsors Young’s Seafood Limited are announcing another incredible surprise act!
Rising up 4 meters high, constructed from 33 luminous pink wheelie bins and set to delight the people of North East Lincolnshire, is Binbot, a uniquely astounding recycled Giant. Binbot is set to make a huge impact at the carnival, towering over revellers at about the size of a two-storey house, the giant will tour the streets as an ambassador for recycling, being made of recycled material himself.
Binbot joins several exciting acts in the carnival including local favourites Granny Turismo, the world’s first, and only, Shopping Trolley Dance Display Team and another amazing new act, Fire Bird, a stunning fire-breathing mechanical bird. Rearing up to 5 meters tall and breathing a fountain of sparks, the spectacular feathery fire-breather will make an incredible sight alongside the giant Binbot and together they will surely have people flocking to Cleethorpes this Saturday.
There will also be a Continental Market running from Thursday 16th through to Sunday 19th July featuring delicious dishes from across the world. The market, brought to Cleethorpes by Marketplace Europe, will feature delicious dishes from across the world, with culinary delights from as far afield as Morocco, Greece, Holland, Germany, Spain, and Thailand. The Market will also sell goods and merchandise from all corners of the globe, including footwear, scarves, jewellery, craftware, musical instruments and an array of fabulous fabrics and other gifts.
Cruising through the carnival parade in a stylish car donated by Thurlby motors, alongside the Fire Bird, Binbot and the hilarious Granny Turismo will be the newly announced carnival royalty. Last week the Cleethorpes 2015 Carnival Prince and Princess were announced and the lucky winners are Mia-Ella Enefer, 8 and Ben Smith, 8, both from Cleethorpes.
Make sure you and your family don’t miss out on what is set to be the biggest and best Cleethorpes Carnival ever! Arrive at the Sidney Park annex at the junction of Ward Street and Brereton Avenue on Saturday 18th July at 3pm.
Since stepping in at the end of 2012 to support the Carnival after its future looked uncertain, Young’s Seafood Limited has seen the Carnival go from strength to strength with last year’s event raising a whopping £4,000 for local causes. Pete Ward CEO of Young’s Seafood, commented: “The Cleethorpes Carnival is hugely important to us at Young’s, because it brings people together and helps to raise money for worthwhile causes, as well as being a great day out. Now celebrating its 40th year, many people have grown up with the Carnival and this tradition is part of our town’s heritage. Everyone is welcome at the Carnival and we hope you’ll bring your friends, family and neighbours along to get involved in the celebrations.”
Sue Popper, Co-founder of Joogleberry Acts, representing Binbot and Firebird, commented: “We are so excited about this coming Saturday and just can’t wait to see Binbot on the procession at Cleethorpes Carnival! This is an act like no other in the world and we know it’s going to help make this carnival the best one ever!”
