Abergele Carnival 1958/9 pictures

I was looking through some of my old slides the other day and found these three pictures of girls taking part in a dance demonstration  in Pentre Mawr Park, also of the Carnival/Rose queen of that year. I thoughtit was 1959 but possibly it was 58.

The little girl in the ballet dress is my lovely little sister Christine and I seem to remember one of the three girls together was a Miss Hill, so long ago. I also remember my little sister being dressed as a rat and dancing along behind the Pied Piper, she was the youngest and smallest child to take part. I do have some more pictures and a short film of the day that I am trying to find. In the meanwhile does anyone remember this event or any of the people in the photographs?

Regards,

John BDo you know any of the young ladies?

    These are lovely photos John, especially the one of your sister. Fancy dress was something I remember too: the Chest Hospital fete, Abergele Show at the roundabout field, Glan Morfa sports day.
    Re Abergele Carnival, I’ve just heard a fantastic story about a horse at the 1954 Abergele Carnival, told by an old friend Dave Morris. I’ve asked if he’d be willing to share it here. If he does, it’ll be posted here before long. It’s a cracking story.

    Fame at last! I was that Ballerina – aged four or five I think. My ballet dancing days did not last for long – I refused to go to any more classes when the teacher told us we would be learning how to do the splits – I wasn’t daft I didn’t want to be split in half but I did progress with my dancing when I was about thirteen, not ballet dancing but ballroom dancing with the Russell Rees School of dancing in Rhyl, which later became Russell Way Dancing School.
