Aldeburgh Carnival has been shortlisted for a national award - just ahead of this year’s event.
The annual event has been chosen by holiday rentals site HolidayLettings.co.uk (owned by TripAdvisor) as one of the final 11 competitors in the running for the UK’s Most Popular Carnival Award. Other nominations include Sheringham and Wells-next-the-Sea carnivals in Norfolk.
News comes as preparations are being finalised for this year’s three-day seaside spectacular, to run from August 18-20.
Aldeburgh Carnival has already won Family Tourism Event of the Year at the East Anglian Daily Times and Eastern Daily Press Norfolk and Suffolk Tourism Awards 2018.
The carnival is believed to be at least 170 years old, and was known as Ye Olde Marine Regatta as long ago as 1835.
