London SE1 website team

The organisers of the Waterloo Carnival have set the date for this year's event - Friday 15 July - and want your help to choose a theme.

Last year's carnival had a jungle theme, 2009 was all about aliens, in 2008 The Wizard of Oz was top of the bill and in 2007 the carnival went under the sea.

The carnival organisers want suggestions for this year's theme from the local community – and as an added incentive, if your idea gets the most votes, you could win a trip in a private capsule on the EDF Energy London Eye.

For a chance to win, post your idea on the Waterloo Carnival Facebook page by 5pm on Tuesday 19 April.

The Friends of Waterloo Carnival will then choose the three best ideas. The shortlist will be posted on the Facebook page at 9am on Wednesday 20 April.

On Wednesday everybody votes via Facebook and the idea with the most votes by 5pm on Wednesday 20 April wins the capsule.

Don't forget to put Friday 15 July in your diary and head down to Lower Marsh and Waterloo Millennium Green for a spectacular carnival procession and an afternoon and evening of entertainment.
