Thank you for visiting our website, the home of the Shepshed Lions Charity Carnival.
Before its disappearance in the 1990s, the annual carnival was the most important event of the summer in Shepshed. It brought us all together for a celebration of our amazing little corner of the world and created treasured memories for all of us who grew up in the village.
So, in 2010, the Shepshed Lions Club decided to resurrect this most important of traditions and organised the first Shepshed Charity Carnival, so that current and future generations had the opportunity to get together and make their own memories… and importantly so that money could be raised to support local causes and those in most need within our local community.
The annual event has grown rapidly over the last eight years. It is now the signature event of Shepshed’s summer, attracting in excess of three thousand people each year. The carnival is the only true community charity event in the village and is organised and delivered by the volunteers of the Shepshed Lions Club, with all proceeds going back into our community – to those who need it most.
We encourage everyone in our community to get involved however they can, whether it be simply attending on the day, volunteering time to help with organisation or delivery of the event or by sponsoring the event. If you would like to get involved, please call Bill Holland, the Club President, on 07811 353 248, or email us on Shepshedlionscarnival@hotmail.com
We look forward to seeing you at Glenmore Park, Shepshed on Monday 26th August 2019.
