The Carnival Procession, Diss, Norfolk - 16th June 2024

Isobel and the Palgrave Players have a float in the annual Diss Carnival procession, so it's a good excuse to capture the event a bit more comprehensively. This includes legging it up to Diss High School where the parade is assembling, and then following it all the way down to the bottom of Mere Street.
