... organisers have put together a "lockdown carnival" and are inviting people to join in on Saturday, May 23. Families are being urged to make their own costumes, put up decorations and tune in for live music, videos and otheractivities online.
"We are asking our regular carnival-goers to take the opportunity to spread the word far and wide and invite friends and family, wherever they may be, to join in.
