For more information on each carnival please visit their individual websites.



Unfortunately due to the above virus it has been decided in the interests of safety to the audience and entrants to postpone all the above carnivals for 2020.

This decision has been taken reluctantly, see the press release for more information.

Our carnivals are run entirely by volunteers who have to fund raise annually to finance the building of their entries, there is very little sponsorship available!

Each carnival holds a street collection which helps local charities and community groups raise funds as well as helping to fund the carnivals, so please give generously.

Your support is vital to the continuation of our carnivals in their present standard!
