Can you help?

A Carnival provides a wonderful opportunity to get together as a community to celebrate and enjoy what we have. Whether you live or work here, Crowthorne Carnival week has much to offer you.

The last Carnival was in 2018 and we have all been through a lot since. Covid has affected us in so many ways; our world has changed. As things stand, we can now plan for a Carnival in 2022 and what a year that should be: 75 years of Her Majesty’s reign and the return to a life of ‘normality’.

The Carnival theme for 2022 is The Platinum Years, Monarchy, Music, and Mayhem. 1952 –2022'. As you look back over those years so much has changed and this provides everyone with plenty of scope to join in and take us down memory lane. That said, we hope that not everyone will dress as Freddie Mercury!

Our offer to you

  • Joining in: (and this is most important) please join in and have fun – don’t be the odd one out!

  • Why not organise an event as part of Carnival Week? - For this to be a week of fun, we need people and organisations to work together and run their own events. Some will do this to raise monies exclusively for themselves, but if it’s a success perhaps you could make a donation to the Carnival to help cover the running costs and ensure there are sufficient funds carried forward for 2024.

  • Consider Sponsorship? We have a range of sponsorship opportunities that might be of interest to you. You could, for example, sponsor a specific element of the Carnival Parade or an attraction in the afternoon fete. Maybe you could donate a prize or something for our lottery? Your generosity would be noted in the list of sponsors in our Carnival Programme.

  • Place an Advert? The Carnival Programme is distributed to every home in Crowthorne. It includes details of the week’s activities, who is doing what and details of all our sponsors. This is a great opportunity to get your name and business details noticed by the people of Crowthorne.

  • Just Giving: how about making a donation as every pound helps. Having to cancel the 2020 Carnival due to COVID has reduced our funds. Click here to visit our Just Giving page.

Local Businesses

The Carnival is a wonderful opportunity to raise your local profile and the village should be the place of first choice. Whether you are working from the High Street, Church Street, Dukes Ride, Greenwood Road, from home, or in a local business unit, we can offer you several opportunities to help. In return we will promote your business, where you are and what you have to offer.

Your carnival relies on the support of the whole community. If you are interested in helping us in any way then please get in touch and we can discuss your ideas and options.

Thank you in anticipation of your support.
