Ilkley Carnival to have its own cocktail

Ticket Office general manager Lawrence Doyle and Ilkley Carnival committee member Suzanne Watson

12:38pm 16th April 2018

Ilkley Carnival has partnered with local bar The Ticket Office to develop a unique, fruity cocktail to help raise even more funds for the community.

The Ilkley Carnival cocktail named ‘Bubble Bath’ is created using bubble gum flavouring, grapefruit vodka, Aperol, lemon and rhubarb and promises customers a special surprise! The tipple will be available as part of the bar’s new summer menu and 50p from every glass sold between Friday 4th – Monday 7th May will go into the fundraising pot.

The carnival donates funds to a number of local causes and organisations each year. The 2018 TV themed event has chosen the Burley Scout and Guide Group to be this year’s primary beneficiary, receiving half of all profits with the remaining half distributed between other local good causes.

The Ticket Office general manager Lawrence Doyle said:

"This is the first time we've experienced Ilkley Carnival and we're really excited to be involved with such a great local cause. The 4th to the 7th May will be a bumper weekend for Ilkley with the Tour de Yorkshire followed by the Carnival on Bank Holiday Monday. Our ‘Bubble Bath’ Carnival Cocktail gives visitors throughout the weekend the chance to 'have a drink on' Ilkley Carnival and do their bit to boost the funds raised."

Ilkley Carnival tickets will also be available to buy at The Ticket Office in the coming weeks and will cost £13 for a family ticket, £5 for an adult and £2 for children.

Carnival committee member Suzanne Watson was one of the first to taste the carnival's "Bubble Bath" cocktail this week. She said:

"We're so excited to be introducing the very first carnival cocktail and it's all thanks to the creative flair and the generosity of The Ticket Office who are giving us a superb way to raise even more funds for the local community. The "Bubble Bath" is everything you'd expect from Ilkley Carnival - spectacular, fun, with lots of fizz and personality! I'd certainly encourage everyone to try the tipple - it's the perfect tonic for parents needing a break from making TV-themed parade costumes and of course, it's for a very good cause!"

Ilkley Carnival takes place on 7th May and will feature a number of activities including the TV themed parade, fairground rides, a classic car show and the annual Black Hats vs White Hats cricket match.
