There are events and entertainment throughout the year in Sheringham, many of them organised by Sheringham Carnival Association. Our aim is to promote the town as a holiday destination, to foster our community spirit and to financially assist local charities and local organisations.
The Carnival Royal Family
Every year, we select a local lady as Carnival Queen, as well as two Attendants and a Prince and Princess. This ‘royal’ family has duties ranging from presenting prizes to competition winners, visiting senior citizens at some of the town’s care homes, to representing Sheringham at Cromer Carnival.
The Carnival Queen is crowned at a special ceremony at the start of Carnival week, when we lay on a variety of open-air games and activities aimed at the youngsters. Throughout Carnival Week there are competitions (for young and old alike), which involve many of the Town’s businesses and shopkeepers, and keep families entertained for hours on end.
