The Redbridge Carnival Association are looking for women between the ages of 15 - 25 that are community stalwarts, active, dress well, energetic and want to be Ambassadors for Redbridge.

The search for this years Carnival Queen has now started and applications are being sought from would be local royalty.  The role itself will involve speaking at Redbridge Carnival and other local events, appearing for photo shoots and showing the type of behaviour that a role with such responsibility warrants.

Prizes this year include a trophy and a £500 fashion photo shoot for the eventual Redbridge Queen and £250 photo shoots each for the two princesses at Jack Carter Photography.

We are pleased to announce that this years competition is to be held at the Toni and Guy Salon in Ilford Town Centre(213 High Road, Ilford) on the 30th July 2011.

Manager Kitty Patti and her girls will be putting girls through their paces and illustrating them how to saunter elegantly before the judges and how to behave publicly.  The event is going to have Toni and Guy branding so expect a high profile well rehearsed competition.  This is a real ramping up oif our traditional competition that was previously held at Redbridge College.

If you feel you are up to the challenge please call 020 8514 0861 and obtain an application form.  Alternatively email Rajeshri Chouhan on

The role will require some public speaking and is not for the faint-hearted.
