Carnival 2022: What a Success!
That’s a wrap! We closed Swanage Carnival 2022 in spectacular style, with a jam packed day of entertainment, live music, the Lancaster Bomber air display and stunning fireworks. This video sums up the great atmosphere of the week. Thank you to everyone who attended, helped organise, sponsored and supported the Carnival volunteers to enable us to out on this week. We hope to have raised lots of money for our 20 chosen charities and good causes, and we will post details in the coming months.
Carnival came back with a bang ….
With hot weather and top events, Swanage Carnival was a scorcher of a week with crowds flocking into the town, hugely relieved and excited that Swanage’s annual fiesta was back after two years of cancellations.
Events old and new…
From air displays to dinosaur shows, from cookery demonstrations to fun competitions, swimming and running races plus all the bands and late nights at the Carnival Arms, it’s been a memorable eight days, not forgetting, of course, the spectacular firework displays.
Swanage Carnival is the premier carnival on the south coast and is a self-funded organisation, run solely by volunteers.
In 2022 the volunteers of Swanage Carnival helped raise over £29,000 which was distributed to 20 charities and good causes. So, please make sure you join us this year to help us raise as much as we can for our 2023 benefiting organisations.
Raising thousands of pounds each year for our chosen charities and good causes
In 2022 Swanage Carnival celebrated another successful year, giving away a staggering £29,150 to 20 selected organisations. The donations were awarded at our annual presentation night and we have been delighted to learn how these hard raised funds have been put to great use in our community.
