There’s a nice bit of film on the British Film Institute website of the Redditch Carnival of 1951.
With much bowing and curtseying the new carnival queen of Redditch takes her place on what appears to be a giant wedding cake.

The Fulke Greville Festival 2018 is a celebration of the history, poetry, music, life and legacy of Sir Fulke Greville (1554-1628), Alcester’s most famous Elizabethan figure.
As 2018 marks the 400th anniversary of his funding of Alcester Town Hall and the 390th anniversary of his death, a calendar of special events will bring to life the many cultural interests and achievements of this intriguing figure from Warwickshire’s past.
It is proposed that a series of organised events, lectures, talks and guided walks will run from Friday 28 – Sunday 30 September 2018, and be based in and around Alcester and Warwickshire, the town and county of his birth.
