Help plan Hertford Carnival

Planning for the 2019 Hertford Carnival is now underway! If you would like to join us, we would love to have you. An enormous amount of work has to go into organising even a small-scale static event: the more help, the better the event! Fresh ideas and energy would be welcome.

If you have any particular skills in finance, event organising, publicity, or Health & Safety, if you have general organisational or people skills, or are simply keen, please mention when contacting us. You will be most welcome.

We will list you as an organiser on the website, unless you have any objection.

Help on the day

Extra pairs of hands can be needed on carnival day itself, for example to set up stalls or shake tins.  If you can provide a pair, please contact us (mentioning ‘on the day’).

Other ways individuals can help

Spread news of the carnival;

We will do our best to let everyone in the town know the plans for the carnival.  However it would assist us if you as individuals could;

  • Pass on the news of the carnival to friends and family, by word of mouth, by sharing our Twitter feed, by forwarding the link to the website, displaying any posters etc.

  • Webmasters; if you have an appropriate website where you could add a link to the Hertford Carnival website, please do so.
    We can link to your site if you have a similar event.

Donate cash or goods;
