Gemini Carnival Club was formed in 1997 with the amalgamation of Aldonvale and Springfield Carnival Clubs.
We are a very family oriented club with ages on cart ranging from 10 to over 75. A
tremendous amount of work if put in every year by club members and their families to produce
some outstanding tableau entries. 2004 was the club’s first year of completing the double winning
the South Somerset Federation Cup and Somerset County Cup with their entry Pirates from the
Caribbean. This has been achieved several times since with entries Lion King the show, Starlight
Express and La Barricade to name a few. However the most memorable entry from Gemini has to
be To the Trees in 2009, which depicted a scene from Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. This cart is
often mentioned by fellow carnivalites as one of the best carts ever!
2015 has brought many exciting challenges allowing us to bring the entry Scott’s Terra Nova to the
streets of Somerset this year. Prepare to be cold the Antartic is coming!
