Deighton Carnival 2024

Another year, another successful Deighton Carnival. 2024 saw the annual Deighton Carnival continue its trend of growing bigger and better, with new acts, new stalls, and new foods to try. The Deighton Carnival is one of the biggest events in Huddersfield, showing the vibrance and talent in the Ashbrow ward, which often gets painted in a negative light. This year was especially important as, unfortunately, the Huddersfield Carnival wasn’t able to secure funding for this year, which would have been their 40th anniversary.
