We hope you've found your way round our new website and like what you see. We'll continue to update it, add news articles and new pages when needed. To let you know what's been going on, here’s a brief update on how things stand…
We’re now taking bookings for trade and charity stalls on Abbey Park at the carnival. We hope to have an application form here on the website shortly, but in the meantime if you contact us here then someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
We'll have lots of things to do on the day, including the usual funfair and food stalls, all taking place at the same time as the carnival, so as well as lots of fun and entertainment there will also be lots of lovely food!
It isn’t too late to enter a float into the carnival parade, although most of the HGVs that we are providing have already been allocated so if you want one then you need to get in touch quickly. But there will always be space for any group who wants to provide their own transport, or enter a walking float. We’d particularly like to encourage more of the smaller floats – the car and trailer type – this year as they’re a great way for smaller organisations, or groups of family and friends, to participate without the need to decorate a whole HGV. In terms of the parade itself, the route will be published on this website once it's been finalised and agreed, so keep an eye out on our news section.
We’re still putting together the programme of entertainment for the day at the moment, so we can’t tell you just yet who’s going to be appearing. But we are certain that you’ll love it! Watch this space for more news soon.
Finally… the Pershore Carnival is entirely a volunteer-run event. We have no automatic funding stream and we’re always willing to talk to your organisation about sponsoring part or all of the carnival day, whether that be the parade, the festival or a trade stand. We still have plenty of opportunities for local businesses to provide sponsorship. There will also be advertising opportunities in the carnival programme and on this website and through our social media accounts. If you want to be involved in making this year’s carnival an event to remember, then please get in touch on our contact us page.
