It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 2023 Corfe Mullen Carnival Website.
The event has remained an important part of our community since the first event was held in 1967 and continues to bring together people of all ages to celebrate the spirit and culture of our town.
It is a privilege to serve as the Chairman of this year's Carnival and I trust that the information contained within this website will provide you with sufficient details of the wide variety of events and activities that we have planned. If you require further information, please contact us through our “contact us” button.
A key objective of this year's Carnival is to celebrate our community and with the current economic pressures in mind, I am pleased to confirm that thanks to the fantastic support of local businesses, there will be no admission charge to the Carnival events ground. In addition, we will be subsidising the cost of many of the activities on Carnival Day to make the event affordable for all.
Our community is made up of people with many and varied interests and the Carnival will provide local organisations and youth groups with the opportunity to showcase their work with a wide variety of stalls, activities, and performances planned.
Whether you are a long-time resident of Corfe Mullen or new to the area, there is something special about the Carnival that draws us all together and I hope that you will join in the fun and celebrations that will be taking place in June.
Each year the Carnival raises many thousands of pounds for local good causes and the money collected in buckets during the street procession will go directly to our charities, so please do give generously.
This year the Carnival is supporting the following organisations: -
• The Green Island Holiday Trust
• Going For Bust
• Poole Sailability
I would like to thank the members of the committee who have worked tirelessly to organise and plan the various events over the past year and to all the volunteers who help to make the carnival safe and enjoyable for everyone.
Thanks also to all the participants, whether you are marching in the parade, performing on stage, or running a stall, I wish you the best of luck. Your contributions are what make this Carnival so special, and I am looking forward to seeing all the amazing things that you have in store for us.
Once again, welcome to the 2023 Corfe Mullen Carnival. Let us come together to celebrate our community and all that makes it special.
I look forward to seeing you all there.
Huge CONGRATULATIONS to John Connors, who has been selected as Carnival Prince, and to Amiya Cliffe, for being chosen as Carnival Princess (pictured in the middle). Their attendants are Noah Heckford and Libbie Thick.
