A monster effort for Weymouth Carnival

A Local legend is being resurrected for this year’s Weymouth Carnival.

Craftspeople who have signed up to a new carnival skills class at Weymouth College are making a giant replica of the Chesil Beach Monster known as Veasta which will be paraded through the town in August.

It’s all part of a drive to create a new and inspirational float-free carnival procession with a distinctive local signature, drawing on the area’s history and unique selling points.

It will lead up to 2012 when it is hoped Weymouth will be one of five places in the UK to host a major festival of arts and culture.
