The team behind a town carnival have today revealed a pun-laden theme for next year’s event.

Diss Town Carnival and Fun Day’s theme for 2019 is Pre-Diss-Toric.

The event, which could attract thousands of spectators, will be taking place on June 9, 2019.

Forms are currently being finalised for stall holders to apply to participate.

In 2018, Diss Carnival and Fun Day’s theme was Water Wonderland, in honour of Diss Mere.

Mermaids, pirates and gigantic ducks were spotted dancing in the parade.

More than 50 stall and rides pitched up at the park with thousands taking part in a number of games including lightsaber sessions with the Norwich Star Wars Club Jedi Academy, tug of war and water relay race.

The carnival procession began at Diss High School, through the Market Place and onto Mere Street before the festival spread across Diss park.
