The search is on to find Todmorden’s Carnival Queen and two Carnival Princesses who will be the stars of the show when Todmorden Carnival parades through the town next spring.

Now they are looking for the girls who will follow in the footsteps of 2014’s carnival royalty, Carnival Queen Alison Donnelly and Princesses Katie Donnelly and Sameeha Naseer (pictured).

The Princesses are aged between six and 11 and the Carnibval Queen is aged 12 or over, and the committee has organised ther auditions for Sunday, November 30.

They will be held at Todmorden Social Club, Halifax Road, Todmorden town centre, at 2pm.

Anyone who would like their daughter to be considered for the role can find out more and contact the Carnival Committee in advance via its website, www.todmordencarnival.com - there is an application form on there which can be downloaded.

The carnival also has a Facebook site.

Todmorden’s schools have been asked to come up with a theme for next year’s carnival, and the winning theme is also set to be announced soon.
