By | Uncategorised | No Comments

If you’re already planning ahead for next year’s carnival week then here are the all important dates for your diary:

3rd August to 11th August 2019 
Traditionally, our carnival week is the first Wednesday in August for parade day and whatever weekends fall either side so the first Wednesday in August next year is 7th August, Parade Day. 

New Event for Sunday Evening!

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Sadly, we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the torchlight parade and fireworks, but the good news is we’ve got a fun family evening planned instead!

There will be games, music and a BBQ from 6pm on Sunday, outside the Lobster Pub until the drawing of the raffles at 8.15pm.

See you there!

Fireworks Cancelled

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

After consultations with Sheringham Golf Course, Titanium Firworks and the Norfolk Fire Service we regret to inform you that the Torch light Parade and Fireworks advertised for Sunday evening have been cancelled.

Despite the rain that fell last weekend, the firing site remains tinder dry. We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment this causes.

Flying Display & Inflatables Cancelled

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

It is with regret that we have to announce that due to technical difficulties, the Yak 52 flying display which was scheduled to be part of our Crowning Day on Sunday, has been cancelled. All other published events will be going ahead.

The Inflatables play activities advertised in our Sheringham Events Handbook for Carnival Tuesday, 31st July,  will also not now take place on the advice of the North Norfolk Safety Advisory Group following resent tragic events. The safety of our visitors is of paramount importance to us.
We apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause.
