Who are Aylesham Carnival Association and what is the history behind them?
The Court of Aylesham was started many years ago, the first known at this time is 1929 and unfortunately was then stopped for one reason or another.
Several years past and one of our founder committee Members Angela Ritson became involved with carnival and had dealing with this for many years.
Carnival in Aylesham was changing year by year and slowly the carnival dwindled away and had a break for a couple of years.
In 2001 it was decided to start the Carnival again with a Christmas Carnival,
In 2002 Rob Williams and Alan Watson, under a newly formed committee of Aylesham Events Committee, organised another excellent carnival.
In 2003 it was decided that the Carnival should become an independent association and this is where we are today as Aylesham Carnival Association.
Sadly on 7th January 2006 Angela Ritson suddenly passed away, Angela was our very own Mrs Carnival and after a break away from carnival Alan Watson and Rob Williams have come back to assist with the committee.
