Stagecoach South West Carnival Fever

05 Sep 2019

Stagecoach South West prepare to take part in carnival parades

The Stagecoach South West roadshow team is excited to announce that they will be attending annual carnivals in Barnstaple and Honiton.

Following the success of Ilfracombe carnival in August, where Stagecoach South West won third place for their carnival display, the roadshow team are looking forward to taking part in two more carnivals, Barnstaple in North Devon and Honiton in East Devon.

Barnstaple carnival takes place on Saturday 21 September, with the procession starting at 6pm from North Walk.

The Honiton carnival, on Saturday 26 October, starts from Ottery Moor Lane at 7.30pm.

A whole host of organisations will be taking part in the two carnivals, providing free entertainment for the whole family.

Members of the public will be able to spot the Stagecoach South West roadshow team in the procession and meet mascot Gary the Rabbit, who will undoubtedly add to the carnival cheer.


Bob Dennison, Managing Director of Stagecoach South West, said: “Stagecoach South West is delighted to be taking part in the Barnstaple and Honiton carnival processions. The team loves getting involved in these community occasions, and we are looking forward to meeting local people, handing out giveaways and timetables and entering into the fun carnival spirit, with everyone’s family favourite mascot, Gary the Rabbit!”

Stagecoach South West run regular bus services across Devon, including in Barnstaple and Honiton.
