AN EVENT to select Stourport’s new carnival queen and consort will be held in June as organisers gear up for this year’s bash.
Stourport Civic Hall will host the Carnival Queen, Princess and Rosebud choosing on Sunday, June 11 from 1pm onwards.
The lucky winners will replace this year’s consort of Queen Jodie Davies with Princess Hannah Hawkins-Long and Rosebud Chloe Guise.

Each of the winners will receive flowers and a monetary prize on the day and will have dresses of their choice specially made for them to wear on carnival day, which is on Saturday September 2, when they will be officially crowned and take part in the weekends activities.
