Carnival court

Each year a Carnival Queen and (usually two) Princesses are selected to represent Great Dunmow at Carnivals all over Essex. This tradition started over 60 years ago with our first Carnival Queen, June Brown (nee Devoil) in 1951.


A carnival court selection evening was held on the 26th March 2022 when the new carnival court was crowned. 

Our 2023 Court Members: 

Queen Emily Sullivan & Hunnie Beedle
Princess Poppy Callcut 
Prince David Paduraru
