Carnival Committee Members & Friends of Swanage Carnival

If you would like to join the Swanage Carnival volunteers there are two membership options.   You can join either as Carnival Committee Member and be involved with our work and preparations throughout the year, as well as volunteering your time during Carnival week.   Or you can join as a Friend of Swanage Carnival and offer your time during Carnival week.

Carnival Committee Member

Swanage Carnival is one of the oldest organisations of its kind.   We strive to put on a spectacular show for the beautiful town of Swanage and also to raise money for a selection of good causes that will directly benefit our community.

Swanage Carnival is a voluntary organisation which is fully self funded, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and the thousands of attendees who support our many events.

Our Carnival Committee Members work hard throughout the year, planning the next event and raising vital funds.  We meet every month, providing an open forum for our volunteers to discuss Carnival matters and develop new ideas.

If you are able to join us for our monthly meetings and spare some time during Carnival week, to help us make sure Swanage Carnival continues for years to come, please get in touch to find out more about becoming a Carnival Committee Member.

Friend of Swanage Carnival

If you cannot commit to regular meetings, or if attending monthly meetings is not for you, why not become a Friend of Swanage Carnival.

As a Friend of Swanage Carnival you volunteer to give your time during Carnival Week, helping with collections and events.  There is no requirement for you to attend any meetings during the year.

A regular newsletter will be sent out to keep you updated with Carnival news and you will receive invites to social events.

If you would like to join our team of Carnival Friends, please get in touch.

The benefits

  • Become a member of a highly enthusiastic and successfull team.

  • Help raise money for charities and good causes.

  • Help plan events and meet new friends

  • It’s hard work… but it’s lots of fun!
