The Carnival Committee would like to thank everyone who bought a Carnival Programme.  Your support makes the running of the Recreation Centre possible.

We’d also like to thank the stall holders, the bands, the dancers and especially all the volunteers who freely gave their time and efforts to give Copmanthorpe a great carnival.

We will reveal the theme and date for Carnival 2019 here in the next few months. For now we are considering all suggestions for improvements so please let us have yours.


The 2018 Carnival was sponsored by Wishart Estate Agents of York and Tadcaster.

Commenting on the move a company spokesman said, “Wishart Estate Agents are delighted to sponsor Copmanthorpe Carnival 2018. Giving back to the community in which she was raised and where Wishart Estate Agents was originally founded, is a dream come true for owner Lucie Wishart.”

RAW-Wheels, alloy wheel refurbishers and hydrographic specialists based in Fulford,  sponsored the Arena at this year’s Carnival. 

BDSS Traffic Management of Rotherham  sponsored the Silent Disco

Vantage Motor Group sponsored the Traditional Games area at this year’s Carnival


Please support all our sponsors – their involvement helps make the Carnival the success that it is.


If your company would like to sponsor any aspect of the 2019 Carnival please contact the organisers. Remember, 5,000 people could see your brand!
