Thousands of people attended the Old Basing and Lychpit Carnival with some reporting queues of 45 minutes to get in.

The event was held at the Recreation Ground on Saturday, June 17, starting at 12pm. 

Some people reported that there were queues of 45 minutes to enter the site with some missing presentations involving relatives. 

However, it seemed that the queues had gone by around 2pm.

A carnival spokesman said: “We were expecting a lot of people to be here, it's just the nature of lots of people trying to get into places like this in a very short space of time.

“We think about 2,000 people have attended. People waiting for 45 minutes sounds like a lot, but I don't know the individual circumstances. 

“To us, it's been a fantastic day.”

People were sharing their experiences of the day on the carnival's Facebook page. One commenter said: "The queue was 45 mins long and while we were queuing cars were attempting to exit and having to turn around in the middle of people."

However, another said: “That was excellent, thank you to everyone involved in organising a fun, family, village event.”

The carnival included a variety of stalls, fairground games, refreshments, classic cars on display and various arena events.
