It is less than a week to go until the carnival spirit arrives in Diss — and with excitement rising for Sunday's festivities we have raided the archives again to get a look back at the fun in 1993.

There were plenty of wacky costumes and outfits on show with a circus theme. Clowns, the ring master and even some horse riding acrobatics!

The parade though the town centre remains then as now a highlight opf the day, this year the Diss Carnival has a pun-laden pre-historic theme — Pre-Diss-Toric — and takes place on Sunday, June 9.
