We’re delighted to announce that The Valley will be this year’s main sponsors of the carnival.

We’re still taking bookings for community and charity stalls on the meadow at the carnival. If you run a local voluntary organisation, of any kind, we’d love to add you to our growing community village!

At the moment, all of HGVs that we are providing have already been allocated. But there is still space for any group who wants to provide their own transport, or enter a walking float. We’d particularly like to encourage more of the smaller floats – the car and trailer type – this year as they’re a great way for smaller organisations, or groups of family and friends, to participate without the need to decorate a whole HGV.

As well as the parade, we’ve got a great programme of entertainment on the Crown Meadow stage. This year, we are showcasing local talented groups and individuals. The evening will finish with our headline act of Soul Manifesto starting at 19:30.

Finally… the Evesham Carnival is entirely a volunteer-run event, supported by the Vale of Evesham Round Table and other local organisations. We have a number of opportunities for local businesses to provide sponsorship. There will also be advertising opportunities in the carnival programme. If you want to be involved in making this year’s carnival an event to remember, then please get in touch via email to
