The CISPP van is out and about with a new exhibition attending many outside events this summer. Although there has been 2 years of no carnivals due to the pandemic, we did in fact attend 4 masquerading carnivals in 2021 in Castle Cary, Chard, Burnham and Honiton. All were successful and enthusiastically received by the public despite the absence of carts. This year is the centenary of Glastonbury (in its present form) Ilminster and South Petherton carnivals.

We have now completed the trilogy of We are the Champions, Nearly Champions and Best of the Rest DVD’s.

Available at £10 each OR all three for £20 plus postage and packing. Email
