Wells Globe Carnival Club
Sport & Activities > Hobbies & Interests
The Carnival Club's origins date back to 1968 when the Unigate Carnival Club was formed under the guidance of Glad Parsons, Bill Baker and various other Unigate employees.
Our first entry was Valhalla, Hall of Dead Heroes. It was a small affair, certainly by today's standards, with its 4 kVA generator and all completed with a budget of £36. To the delight of the ten members it picked up third place in the local class at Wells carnival.
As the years passed, so the number of Unigate employees in the club diminished. Against this background it was deemed unreasonable for so many non-employees to be on the Unigate site and the club agreed to move. Cyril and Eve Hunt, licensees of the Globe Inn, offered a home and in 1975 the club became "The Globe Inn Carnival Club". In 1980 the club moved from the Globe Inn, setting up its headquarters at the "Little Theatre" and changed its name to "The Globe Carnival Club".
