Carshalton Carnival - Cancelled

Carshalton Carnival - Saturday 11th June 2022 

It is with great regret and much sadness that Carshalton Carnival Committee have decided that the Carnival this year cannot go ahead.

In the last two years we’ve missed out on Carnival due to Covid. In that interval it seems the permissions we have to seek from the local council and other bodies have become significantly more complex and difficult for us to navigate, and the event planning workload has simply become untenable for a volunteer committee to manage.

In addition to this, like all of us in our daily lives, we are facing rising costs and reduced income which put the success of our event at serious risk.

Many events change over time, and Carnival has been no different in that difficult decisions have had to be made in the face of some of the changes we’ve encountered. However, Carnival has survived so far by adapting the nature of the event. But when the staging of any event becomes so complex and onerous, then we need to call a halt to the stress and anxiety that it is causing to the volunteer organisers.

The committee know that many supporters of the event will be very disappointed to hear this news, but trust that you will understand this decision has not been made lightly, and that you will support and enjoy the events of the Carshalton Festival that will be running for the whole week.

20/4/22 - All monies paid by stall holders will be refunded with the next few days
