Please Get Involved, Its Fun!

You can get involved in at least three ways:

1. By volunteering to help.  Thousands of people attend Copmanthorpe Carnival and there is a dedicated team of local residents behind the Carnival every year – but without all the volunteers who give a couple of hours of their time on Carnival day it just wouldn’t happen.

Whether its selling programmes in a few streets near your home in the weeks leading up to the Carnival, helping as a Steward for a couple of hours on the Saturday or helping to clear up afterwards, you’ll enjoy the experience of being an important part of this annual village event.  All volunteers benefit from free entry to the Carnival and free refreshments.

2. By advertising in the Carnival Programme.  Seen by thousands of people and mostly purchased in advance of Carnival day so it stays around the house being read – ideal advertising space.

Advertising rates for 2020 will be released as soon as possible, please come back to the website to check.

3. By having a stall.  Stalls at the Carnival are very reasonably priced given19422570981_1fb3c3124e_m that last year 5,000 people all spent several hours on the Carnival ground.  Stalls each measure 4mt x 4mt and come complete with one trestle table (if you want it).  Double pitches may be booked but places are allocated on a first come – first served basis.

If you would like to have a stall at the Carnival please email:

4. By having a Brilliant Day.  By attending the Carnival, on the day itself or at any of the events that lead up to it, you are helping the Recreation Centre to continue its work providing a much enjoyed village facility and ensuring its continuing availability.
