Important information regarding Worcester Carnival 2020 and COVID-19

The sad, but inevitable, decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Worcester Carnival this year due to the impact of the COVID-19 virus and based on current government guidelines about mass gatherings and social distancing. 

It is a huge commitment from the many community groups who take months to develop and build their floats and so we wanted to let you all know as soon as possible. Worcester Carnival is all about inclusion and many of our participants will be in the most vulnerable groups so as much as we are saddened at the prospect of not putting on this much loved community event, we know it is the right decision. 

We promise to bring you a bigger and better Carnival in 2021. 

Keep well and stay safe everyone,

Worcester Carnival Committee
