Following their recent appeal, the Clacton Carnival Committee received numerous requests from local organisations wishing to be considered as the main beneficiary from the Carnival Procession in August this year.

After very careful consideration of all of the applicants, the Carnival Committee has chosen to support two local charities, the St.Helena Hospice Tendring Day Centre and the West Cliff Theatre who both need funds to improve their facilities for the public. They are both worthy causes which will benefit so many people and we are sure they will be well supported by the public.

The Carnival Committee would like to thank everyone who applied and all other suitable requests will be considered for a donation at the end of Carnival.

Clacton Carnival 2018 week starts with the Carnival Procession at 6.00pm on Saturday 11th August when the theme will be "Through the Ages". Anyone wishes to participate should contact Kimberley on 01255 425004 or full details and entry forms are on the Carnival website:
