Carnival 2020 - Postponed until 2022

As anyone trying to organise any event in 2021 will tell you, it is not easy! Our hope was that we could run it this year but sadly that is not going to be the case. There are just too many unknowns at this key point in time. Accordingly, the Committee have had no option but to agree a further postponement until 2022.

But COVID 19 is not the only challenge facing the Committee. We have until the October AGM to find new members. The loss of two key members means that our already small group of members will simply be too small to carry on and unless we have more help the AGM will be a defining moment for the future of the Carnival. We particularly need someone with a particular interest in organising and managing the Carnival Procession. The parade is a key element of the Carnival so enabling it to happen is a very rewarding experience.

The Carnival was reformed in 1977 and save for the Covid pandemic, has run every other year since. As we look forward, we believe that a full carnival in July 2022 will once again provide our residents, local business and voluntary organisations with a wonderful opportunity to come together and celebrate as one. With your help all is possible.

If you want to know more then please get in touch via our Facebook page (link below) or write to the Carnival secretary.

Please stay safe. We look forward to seeing you all in 2022.

If you are a local business wishing to foster goodwill with your customers then the Carnival is an excellent way to show you care!

If you are a youth group, club, society or business looking to take part in the events that make up Carnival week then you will be most welcome.

Organising an event of this size is quite a challenge. We'd love to have you join our team. Your reward will be a huge sense of achievement!

‘Carnival Day’ commences with a street procession of floats and walkers.

The fete is held at the Morgan Field and features stalls from many charities and local groups, a mini funfair, stage entertainment and many food outlets.

The Carnival Princess for 2018 was Eva Hannah from Crowthorne CofE. If you would like to take part in 2020 then we'd love to hear from you.

Have fun making a scarecrow in keeping with the theme of the Carnival
