Welcome to the official website for Sheringham Carnival

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.
