Welcome to the website of the Hertford Carnival


Carnival 2015 - our business and volunteer supporters

Participants, businesses and volunteers all played their vital parts in ensuring the 2015 Hertford Carnival 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.

Business partners

Various levels of support were sought from local businesses, ranging from being a main sponsor to displaying posters and anything else we - or they - could think of!  This support from local businesses was essential in making this community event happen.

We were very happy to see businesses who had supported us previously being willing to return in 2015! In addition, we had two new sponsors.

All businesses involved benefitted from the publicity pre-, during and post- carnival day.

These kind business partners and supporters for 2015 are detailed below.  Thank you! – without your help, Carnival day 2015 simply could not have happened.


We were very happy to count the following as main sponsors for the 2015 event;

A stalwart supporter from the beginning, Riversmead were a supporter for our resurrected carnival in 2012, donating key money and having a stall in the castle grounds. They continued this support into 2013 and again for 2014. We were delighted to welcome them back again for 2015.


Hertford Town Council

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.

This year the HTC helped to plan the Carnival (again with Rotary), and the event again took place at the Castle.

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

Individuals who assisted Carnival 2015

There was a variety of ways individuals were asked to support the carnival, including planning, marshalling on the day, spreading the word ... And of course coming along on the day!   

Local people were crucial in making the carnival happen, both as a planned and a spectator event.

In 2015 it was a joint venture between Hertford Rotary Club and members of Hertford Town Council, with other individuals welcome to participate.

Members of the main Hertford Carnival Committee (HCC) 2015 were;

The HCC was supported by additional members of the working groups - Publicity, Finance, Events, Health & Safety – with other individuals lending a hand where they could.Rotary logo

Due to the large amounts of planning required for a carnival, even a small scale event without a procession, the committee and sub-groups were busy from October 2014 to June 2015, meeting regularly and progressing numerous actions.

Many extra individuals - from Hertford Rotary, the Town Council, and others - helped out on Carnival day itself, performing marshalling, bucket collecting, stall set-up, and other roles with aplomb.

Our aim was to arrange a community event which local people could enjoy as both participants and spectators, whilst raising money for local charities.  We think the many months of planning paid off!
