The front page of the July 2016 edition of Thornbury Magazine displays a picture of Thornbury Carnival.
The image was drawn by Elizabeth Latham-Roberts, who was 6 years old at time of entering a competition run by Celebration Fairs.
Elizabeth and her family have been invited to join Carnival Chairman Barry Williams as his personal guests for the Opening Ceremony of the Carnival.

PRS for Music licences the use of copyright music across the UK, giving businesses and organisations the legal permission they need to play the music they want.
These licences ensure that music publishers, songwriters and composers are fairly rewarded with royalties so they can keep making music - and mean that we’re able to support music at events like this.
