Knighton is a small market town and community in central Powys, Wales, on the Teme and the Wales-England border. A small part of the town including Knighton railway station is in Shropshire, England. This Anglo-Saxon settlement later became a Norman fortified town.
On the last Saturday in August the town holds its annual Carnival Show, which attracts thousands of visitors to the town from all over the world. It features two parades, one at midday, and another at around 8 pm; these consist of various themed carnival floats and people dressed in fancy dress. The show takes place at the town’s showground at Bryn-y-Castell; also home to Knighton Town F.C., Knighton Cricket Club and Knighton Hockey Club.
