There was recognition too for the mighty Sid Vale CC, which took Best Music and Best Choreography with Brunel’s Workshop.

Before we move onto the full results, a reminder… This is not the end of carnival in Honiton for 2019. The East Devon illuminated circuit may have ended, but there’s Honiton Christmas Carnival still to come! It is taking place on December 14 at 5.30pm.
