Bakewell Carnival 2022 Needs Your Help!

Volunteers are needed, so whatever your skill, however limited the time you have to give may be, it all helps! We need you!

Please help out and show your support.

Over recent years, Bakewell Carnival Committee and the wider community that have supported the Bakewell Carnival have lost many great characters and contributors.

To ensure the continuation of the renowened Bakewell Carnival long into the future, we ask you to join us for an informal hour. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions, make suggestions, meet the committee and help drive Bakewell Carnival forward.

It will be held at the Council Chambers, Bakewell Town Hall on Monday 11th April 2022, 18-1900 hours.

Bakewell is a fabulous town, filled with such great talent, and what better way to showcase our talent – to the town and wider community.

For more information please contact Bakewell Carnival Committee at: bakewellcarnival, or call Louise on 07447 030080 between 16.00 and 20.00.

We hope to see you there! Let’s make Bakewell Carnival 2022 the best yet!!
