There will be Caribbean music in abundance at 1.50pm when the Mighty Jamma takes to the stage with his steel pans and that will be followed by Irish dance at 2.20pm.
The Celtic feel will continue with a second appearance from The Northfield Caledonia and Pipe Band at 2.20pm and Skins and Feet – limbo and African drumming will return at 3.05pm.
Jumpin Jez Avery will be back with his stunt show at 3.25pm and the Funky Feet Academy of Dance which wowed the crowds last year will bring down the curtain on the carnival at 4pm.

One of the Northfield Carnival Committee Tony Maslen said: “It’s going to be bigger and better than ever.
“We always have a good turn-out at Northfield Carnival and we are hoping this year will be no different – fingers crossed the good weather continues and the event is one to remember.
“We look forward to seeing you all there.”
