Bewdley Carnival 2024 - The countdown has officially begun!

It’s time to get excited. Bewdley Carnival preparations are fully underway, with new ideas, more attractions for the family to enjoy and a brand new logo!

We have some new faces on our comittee this year, we would like to welcome David Hughes, Sara Mulligan and Sharon Harvey to our team. Dave and Sara are going to manage our entertainment this year, bringing in new local performers and groups.

We also have some position changes to some of the familiar faces on the comittee this year. Denise Eaton and Lisa Portman have been appointed as our Events managers. They are going to be organising the other events leading up to the Carnival for you all to attend – including Bingo, Quiz Nights and much more. We will be advertising these events on here and on our Facebook page.

Rosie Arris-Togher will be taking over as Tresurer this year along with helping organise stalls with other members of the team. Amanda Bradley and Alysha Bourne are returning as our PR and Media officers. We would also like to congratulate Amanda on her new appointment as Head of Bewdley Primary School and Alysha on the birth of her new baby daughter, Neave, who we have already signed up as a new member of the comittee!

Finally, our new Chairman is Martin Fisher. In his new role, Martin is looking forward to working with the other members of the comittee, assisting with the organisation of all aspects of the Carnival and will be managing the marshalling team on the day.

More information will be available soon, so please check back regularly. We can’t wait to show you what we have planned for this year’s Carnival.

Be part of our Parade!

As in previous years, this year’s carnival parade will consist of floats, emergency service vehicles, local groups, such as Bewdley Community Marching Band, and individuals from local organisations. The parade will start at 12pm and will travel from Bewdley Pines Golf Club, down Habberley Road, along Kidderminster Road and across Bewdley Bridge. It will finally arrive in Bewdley Town Centre by 1:00pm.

If you wish to take part in the parade, or wish to enter a float, please click the button below to find out more. We would love to see you be part of this fantastic event.

We have been asked by visitors to bring back the carnival fireworks display, which featured every year. After running a poll on our facebook page, the results were that the majority of you would like to see this attraction return.

We are asking for supporters to make a small donation and help us to reach our goal to fund this year’s fireworks display. Every penny counts to bring them back, so along with your donations we will be approaching sponsors locally to see if they will help us reach our total.

We are hoping to fully fund the fireworks from supporter donations, allowing all other funds raised on the day to go to three great local causes. If you want to know more about this fundraiser or have any questions, please contact us and one of the team will be in touch.
