A fundraising carnival for Martlets Hospice returns to Hove Park on Monday (May 28).

There will be a variety of entertainment in the main arena including performances from The Black Eagles Acrobatic Show and The Mighty Smith.

Coastway Vets will be running their ever-popular dog show throughout the day with such categories as Cutest Puppy, Most Talented Dog, the Waggiest Tail and the Dog the Judge Would Like to Take Home.

Elsewhere in the park there will be plenty of stalls to choose from, along with children's entertainment, amusements, fun fair rides, cake stalls and rides on Hove Park's miniature steam railway.

The event runs from 11.30am to 5pm.

Antonia Shepherd from the hospice's events team said: "Hove Carnival is our chance to celebrate our very supportive community. It’s always a calendar highlight that marks the start of summer.

“There will be something there for everyone; it promises to be a wonderful afternoon of fun for all the family.

"We're hoping to raise lots of money again this year to support the care of our patients and their loved ones during some of the toughest times in their lives.”
