Stockton-on-Tees – SIRF Carnival pictures 2015

It was SIRF carnival day up in Stockton-on-Tees on the 1st of August and I’ve finally got around to posting some photos from the day.  The carnival looked absolutely fantastic, the sun shone and everyone threw themselves into it! These pictures are from my costume groups.  This years carnival parade followed a specially commissioned story about the history of Stockton.  My section was the first, about a Victorian circus arriving in town.

SIRF Volunteers are people who give up their time to help keep the festival running – this year I dressed them all as circus folk and they joined in with the parade too. This is Doug Harris, who also just happens to be a brilliant unicyclist!
