Ryde Carnival 2020 Cancellation

Ryde Carnival has been monitoring the Covid-19 developments and following Boris Johnson’s announcement on Sunday May 10th it has become abundantly clear that we would not be able to put on our Carnivals and Week of Events and ensure the social distancing that would be required for the safety of participants, spectators and volunteers. Consequently Ryde Carnival’s committee has made the painful decision to cancel this years Carnivals and events.

We are planning on doing some form of parade once larger gatherings are permitted, so keep watching this space! In the meantime we will be uploading puzzles and activities to help keep you entertained.

We share the disappointment with our Carnival Royalty who were chosen back in February long before the lockdown came into effect. They will be unable to fulfill their dreams this year, however they have agreed to retain their roles for 2021, and we thank them for their patience and their commitment to Ryde Carnival.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years especially Ryde Town Council. Many small businesses have shown us great support each year, let’s repay them by shopping locally when they reopen.

Ryde Carnival will be back bigger and better than ever in 2021!

Why not consider joining our happy band of volunteers and help make Ryde Carnival 2021 a year to remember. Please contact us via email at rydecarnival@talktalk.net or message us on the Ryde Carnival facebook page

Take care and stay safe.
