Hanwell Carnival is an independent, volunteer-run event, organised entirely by the community for the community. Hanwell Carnival, which attracts up to 30,000 visitors each year, will be taking place on Saturday 20th June 2015.
Believed to be London’s oldest, first taking place in 1898, it gets under way with a noisy and vibrant procession from Hanwell Community Centre to Elthorne Park, where music, food, dancing, animals, fun fair rides and much much more awaits.
Bookings are now closed for the 2015 carnival. If you want to be added to the waiting list in case of cancellations please click here for charities and here for trade stalls.
Enlist for Team Carnival
Join the team and help organise your local carnival this year. There are loads of stuff you can help with. And we love ideas on how we can make carnival even better. Right now you can help us find sponsors or advertisers, join our procession art workshops or help on the day itself. The list is endless, so give us a shout. You won’t regret it.
Support carnival as a sponsor/advertiser
Become a major sponsor of the carnival itself or sponsor a specific area. With 30,000 visitors last year, the carnival is a great opportunity for your company. Firms can also advertise in our carnival programme, which is delivered to homes prior to the festival and also handed out on the day.
Join the procession
This year’s theme is Historic Hanwell, so there is plenty of material for inspiration. Everyone is welcome - individuals, sport teams, community groups, schools, creches, bands and dance troupes. People’s creativity will be rewarded with prizes for first, second and third place, and there is also a cup for the best turned-out school. There are art workshops at the Hanwell Community Centre in the run up to the procession, to provide help with staging and costumes. Contact Mike, to book a place now via the Join In tab above.
