The Clacton Carnival Committee is already busy planning this year’s fun-packed Carnival Week which is 12th – 20th August.


We are now looking for a Clacton based Charity or organisation, which needs funds in the region of £2,000 - £3,000 for a project which will directly benefit people locally, to be the Main Charity for the Carnival Procession which is on Saturday 12th August, with the theme of STORY TIME. 


Last year a cheque for £2,500 was given to the Holland and Clacton Community First Responders, to enable them to purchase a defibrillator for the Town Hall and for essential training, as last year’s main charity. In the past few years the Carnival Committee have supported many other local groups with monies from the Procession:- Tendring District Scouts, CADOWS, Friends of the West Cliff Theatre, the RNLI and Clacton Maternity Unit, to name but a few.


    For full details of how to be considered for the main charity please write to the Carnival Secretary, Mrs Pat Stannard, 55 Crown Road, Clacton on sea CO15 1AU. Full details of the criteria are also available on the Carnival website: HERE.

All applications need to be in by Friday 17th February.


Carnival 2017 actually gets underway with a Quiz Night, run by local Quizmaster Adrian Robinson, on Friday 24th February at St James’ Church Hall, Clacton to raise funds for the dresses for this year’s new Carnival Queen and her Princesses who will be chosen in March.  To book in for the Quiz please phone 01255 426262 or e-mail:-
