Help plan the carnival

Planning for 2019 Hertford Carnival will start in a few months! If you would like to join us, we would love to have you. An enormous amount of work has to go into organising even a small-scale static event: the more help, the better the event! Fresh ideas and energy would be welcome.

Donations of cash or kind

A collection of resources is essential for both the planning of and the carrying out of the carnival.  These range from pens and stamps to banners and hi-viz jackets for the day's marshals.  Anything that can be provided (or lent) by local people means that those carnival funds can be redirected to the event itself.

Our requirements are constantly evolving.  If you could meet a requirement, if you have something to donate which you think we could use, or if you would like to donate a monetary sum to the carnival fund, please contact us.

In return, and if you have no objection, we will list you as a supporter in all relevant media, for example on the website.
