Swanage Carnival 2021: Update.

We know lots of people are waiting to know if Carnival will go ahead in 2021.

Currently, what requirements or restrictions we may need to meet for holding Carnival or any event after 21st June is not yet clear.
The Government has an Events Research Programme which reports during the roadmap timescale and this will guide decisions not only for Carnival but all larger scale events. We will be following this guidance.

As Swanage Carnival is open to all, if there are any social distancing requirements that remain in place, or if there are limitations on number of people who can attend events, this will have a significant impact on the viability of our event.

Also, due to the uncertainty caused by the pandemic we are conscious that we may not receive any of our usual sponsorship and therefore financing our event this year may be very difficult.

Please be assured that the Carnival Committee are continuing to plan for the Carnival as we would love our event to go ahead, but at this time we are not able to confirm that Carnival 2021 will proceed.

We will continue to keep you updated with announcements over the coming weeks.

Postpone and let’s get properly out of the pandemic, although we need tourism we don’t need an influx of potential carriers our health service doesn’t need to be pushed over the edge again

Better to be safe than sorry, be sensible and wait until next year

We're keeping everything crossed. We'll be in swanage on our annual holiday, so if carnival goes ahead we'll be there 😁

Keeping everything crossed for you

Keeping fingers crossed 🤞🏻

Thank you for your work in trying to keep it as a possibility. Something wonderful to look forward to 👌

Fingers crossed

Just postpone it

So how come Camp Bestval is and Upton carnival can.

Just postpone it to next year and make it a humdinger of a Carnival 😁

Ollie Barrow if it doesn't happen we can still just walk round town with a can of Pimms looking at shop windows pretending to do what's not my line 🤷‍♀️😂

  Swanage Carnival celebrates another triumphant year giving away more than £28,000 to 26 chosen organisations.   With a number of other events falling during Carnival week and with the chain ferry being out of service, there were some concerns that we may see less visitors at Swanage Carnival 2019.  Thankfully this was not the case and we saw greater numbers than ever visiting Sandpit [...]
