As the Carnival Committee, we are very proud of the town we represent. Events don’t just happen - the Carnival is organised by a small group of unpaid volunteers, many of whom work during the day and spend their evenings and weekends throughout the year planning ‘Carnival Day’, we thank them all for their support and hard work over the year.
The Carnival and the Borough Council’s Party in the Park event which follows the Carnival on Sunday provide a forum for local charities to raise much needed funds. They provide many of the town’s minority groups with ways of developing skills and expressing themselves by attending workshops and meetings all of which benefit the event. Besides this the events bring people who are not resident to Wellingborough into town - thereby having a positive effect on local business and a ‘feel good factor’ for residents.
Our event has evolved into the biggest and very best Carnival in the county. We celebrated a very successful 100 years in 2008. Some of the committee have personally been involved with Carnival for over 30 years, we know how hard it is to put on a successful event so please support us by lining the streets to watch the parade and by coming along to Croyland Park once the parade has reached the field.
We are looking forward to your support
