If you can offer help with the mounds of actions involved in the planning, and/or were unhappy with the way the Carnival has been recently and would like to offer up your ideas, or if you can just offer a pair of hands for occasional tasks, please contact us; we'd love to have you.

We will of course also be looking for stalls and performers!

We also appreciate all support from local businesses.

The more local support, the more fresh energy and the more pairs of hands, the better the event can be.

Join us!

Hertford Carnival Funday 2018

Stalls, refreshments and entertainments took place at Hertford Castle on Sunday 25 June, and the day was a win all round.

The England chaps were victorious in the football, winning wonderfully over Panama. Meanwhile the Hertford Carnival funday saw people enjoying themselves as a community and raising money for charity.

Great performers - old and new - entertained the crowds, and the varied selection of stalls ranged from sausage to hats to games to ponies!

Families, adults and children alike enjoyed the afternoon, either having a beer and tapping their feet, or eating ice cream, exploring mazes and playing with sand.

Everyone was invited, and great performers, superb stalls, many volunteers and around 3-4,000 visitors obliged!

It was a lovely community afternoon, and one that also raised much needed funds for local charities.

Participants, businesses and volunteers all played their vital parts in ensuing the day was a success, both on the day and for months in advance.  The day would not have happened without our sponsors and supporters,  organisers and stewards.

THANK YOU to everyone who took part; those who helped, supported or sponsored, the stall-holders and the performers, and of course to everybody who came along on the day!  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

We worked long and hard again in 2018 to organise and put on an afternoon of fun for the community, and we are grateful to all those who participated, who supported us, and everyone who came along and enjoyed the day.
