Get Your Freak On is a tent with a team dedicated to help you make masks, headdresses or full costumes.

The TLC Parade

…Held at dusk on the evening of Sunday 22nd July 2018, this is a chance for you to show off your finery or crazy creations and join the carnival procession around the main arena, ending with the fireshow.

We have a limited number of pre-made character costumes for those that just can’t drag themselves away from the music but still want to take part in the spectacle. Get there early to book your costume!


Our TLC team will be hosting costume creation sessions over the weekend.

These take place:
Saturday July 21st 2018:  13:00 – 19:00

Sunday July 22nd 2018: 12:00 – 17:00.


Space at the workshop is limited so feel free to bring your creation -so you better start working on it now- keep us posted with your progress over the next few months.


Our judges will be out over the weekend to give spot prizes for the best costume.Judges will be looking for inventive, fun costumes. Points will be given to homemade, upcycled and inventive.

Carnival King and Queen

The two best costumes will win a free ticket to TLC 2019.
Come to the Parade Tent in costume to register if you think you’re in with chance.

The winners be announced on Sunday afternoon on the main stage, where they will come on stage to collect their prize.


Our Carnival Parade team have been getting creative in an eco upcycley stylie. Here’s one of our team in a costume made completely from a tent that was left behind last year.
