The West Country Carnival Circuits are an annual celebration featuring a parade of illuminated carts in the English West Country. The celebration dates back to the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. The purpose is to raise money for local charities. The series of parades in each town now form a major regional festival. Some carts cost in excess of £40,000 to build and are the result of thousands of hours work throughout the year.

  • Het West Country Carnival is een jaarlijks terugkerende optocht met verlichte wagens (plaatselijk carts genoemd) in South West England. De festiviteiten gaan terug op de verijdeling van het Buskruitverraad in 1605. In die tijd werd dit gebied nog West Country genoemd. In de aanloop naar het festival, vinden er carnavalconcerten plaats. Na een periode van afnemende interesse zijn de concerten in de afgelopen jaren een populair en belangrijk onderdeel van het carnaval.
