STOWMARKET carnival committee has decided to push the boat out and get the most from their entertainers this year.
The plan, which is set to introduce two new music performance stages, will come to fruition in time for this year's carnival.
Phosphene, a Suffolk stage lighting and sound company, has agreed to undertake the task of organising and providing technical facilities and the operation of both stages throughout the event on July 17 and 18.
Cliff Dix of Phosphene said: "The carnival has been on the go for a long time and I think the decision to introduce new things is a good one.

"The fact that the carnival is now running for two days means that there is more opportunity for local talent. And although it is a family orientated event, the second day will be more aimed at younger audience giving people to the chance to choose what they feel is more to their taste."
This expansion comes in the wake of the committee's decision to give the carnival a bit of a boost, and hopefully make it a bit more profitable.

The new committee chairman Mark Cook said: "Over the past few years money has been lost and many carnivals in the area have died off, we decided to take action.
"We are hoping that this year's carnival will be a lot more successful, providing local business and local talent with profit and opportunities."
