Like everyone, the Clacton Carnival committee have been following the News of Covid-19 and believe the recommended social distancing will still be in force in some way affecting the Carnival week starting August 8th 2020, so it is with regret, this years Carnival events as we know them, have been cancelled.

We really want to assist the local charities and organisations that benefit from Carnival donations so we are hoping to arrange some ‘Carnival pop-up’ events later in the year. 

We are excited to share with you a 'Virtual Carnival Procession’ on what would have been the usual procession day on August 8th 2020. We invite you to take part and would like everyone in the local community to get involved. For more information go to The forms to apply will be available on the website from May 30th.
