Carnival Queen

Meet this year’s head of the procession, with her attendants.


The Carnival Queen and her attendants are:

Minnie Mulumba

This year’s Carnival Queen is 18 year old Minnie Mulumba. We took a moment to meet her and her two attendants down on the beach, to find out a little more about them and take this lovely photo of all three enjoying the May sunshine.


Minnie is currently studying for her A levels and hopes to study medicine at Bart’s and The London Medical School. You might see her at Ives ice cream parlour where she works between studying (she tells us her favourite flavour is Lemon Curd!).

She has chosen for her attendants Emily Cable and Bella Koszykowski, both girls are 7 and attend Aldeburgh Primary school together. Emily loves fishing with her dad, and spending time on walks and playing in the park with family and friends. Bella’s favourite things are swimming, dancing and gymnastics. They are both very excited and looking forward to carnival day.

There is a lovely link between this year’s Carnival Queens party and the one from some years ago… Minnie’s mum, Nicola, was Carnival Queen in 1993 and Bella’s mum, Ria, was one of her attendants!
