Main Sponsors

We are very happy to already have some long-running supporters return as main sponsors for the 2018 event!


Abel - Sales and Lettings

A new Hertford business in 2016, Abel are based in Market Place. An independent Sales and Letting agency, their ethic is about building customer loyalty through trust, transparency and integrity. abel logoThey are also proud to be in Hertford, have committed to keep jobs for local people, and are determined to be involved in local fund-raising events, so we are delighted to welcome them back for a second year of sponsorship!

Their services include landlord/tenant services and sales, and useful extras such as a photography drone, long opening hours, and shuttle cars to property viewings.

On Carnival Day 2016 they sponsored the fancy dress competition, with director Ami Hayward also acting as one of the judges. They were also very visible around the grounds, with their Pimms stall (drinks and scones were free in exchange charity donations), their pink and blue decorations brightening up the arena, and their white balloons.

In 2017, director Ami Hayward was a member of the Carnival committee ...Although was a little less involved due to having a baby! The firm also ran their popular Pimms-and-scones-in-exchange-for-donations stall on Carnival Day again. They fed back on their twitter feed; We had a fantastic time at Hertford Carnival yesterday, and raised over £300 for Isabel Hospice! Thank you to everyone who came out to support not only some great causes but lots of local businesses and our great community in Hertford!

Hertford Town Council

hertford town council crestThe Town Council have been a key and long-running supporter of the Hertford Carnival.

In 2012 the resurrected carnival had key assistance from HTC's members, and the stalls and entertainment took place in the Castle grounds. In 2013 they were a welcome financial sponsor.

We were already delighted to welcome them back again for 2014 as a financial supporter. Then, at the end of May 14, the carnival faced not being able to run in its then format and at its current venue of Hartham. Hertford Town Council stepped in to help, offering to run the 'Carnival at the Castle' with Rotary. Without this support, Carnival Day would simply not have gone ahead.

In 2015 the HTC helped to plan the Carnival (again with Rotary), and the event again took place at the Castle. In 2016, the HTC again took on this leading role, and again offered the Castle venue. They also gave us a grant of £800. Carnival at the Castle 2017 once again went ahead with their support and with a grant of £410.

And thankfully, back again for 2018!

Details of the council's services are found on their webpage.
