Todmorden Carnival

Eleven pictures from this year's Todmorden Carnival

The sun shone down and residents gathered as the 66th Todmorden Carnival got underway at the weekend.

The theme of this year’s procession was Horrible Histories and everyone taking part was encouraged to step back in time for inspiration. Here are a few pictures from the annual event.
