Malaysia Merdeka Carnival UK 2014, Brickendonbury, Hertford

The Malaysian Merdeka Carnival UK 2014 was held at Brickendonbury, Hertford on Sunday 5th October 2014 from 10am-5pm.

The weather was amazing and for an outdoor event held so late in the year it still drew a crowd of over 2000 people. Visitors to the Carnival enjoyed great Malaysian food and entertainment which included a Chinese Lion Dance, X Factor singer Jeffri Ramli, Malaysian dancers, two live bands and a tug of war contest!

The Carnival was opened by The Malaysian High Commissioner, HE Dato' Ahmad Rasidi Hazizi, who also treated the crowd to a heartfelt rendition of Hotel California!

There was a prize draw raffle this year which included some brilliant prizes. The lucky winners took home two return tickets to Malaysia, a 42'' TV, a PS4, an iPad Mini, a two night stay at a top London hotel to name but a few.

As well as the food stalls attractions included several local craft stalls and a range of Malaysian cooking ingredients. There were also rides in the children's area, a bungee trampoline, face painting and animals from nearby Paradise Wildlife Park.

It was a great day for the whole family and we hope to see you again next year at Brickendonbury for the Malaysian Merdeka Carnival 2015.
