THIS year's Milford Haven carnival will have the 'x-factor', thanks to some very special guests.

Boy band Union J will perform a headline slot at the carnival on Saturday, July 1.

And opening the day's festivities will be former pop star and Coronation Street acress Kym Marsh.

Also on the star-studded bill will be escapologist, and one of Europe's top street performers, Rob, whose amazing tricks will leave the crowd asking 'how did he do that?'.

The day will also include the annual favourites, floats through the town's streets, then fairground rides, stalls, food, games and music at the carnival field.

Mark Johnson, of Milford Haven Round Table - which organises the day - said: "They will be supported by some great local talent and an escapologist who has performed all over the world and will definitely provide something different that people in Milford Haven't seen before."
