Welcome to Grove Park Carnival website

Come and join us at our next Carnival on SUNDAY 22 JULY 2018. We’ve listened to your feedback and gone back to a one-day event, and we hope our plans will make it even better than last year. We have moved the date into July, just after the schools have broken up so we hope even more people will join our Parade and take part in our talent show. The talent show isn’t just about singing. If you’re a magician, got BMX skills, are a dance troupe, or can tell funny jokes, or got any other talents you'd like to share with us, we want to hear from you. There’s a cash prize up for grabs. The Dog Show (our 7th) will also see a few changes. We’ll keep you updated once plans are in place, and once again, is run in conjunction with, and supported by The Kennel Club.

We'd love as many people as possible to take part in our Parade. Its an ideal way to promote your school, group or company, or if you just fancy dressing up or dancing as we snake our way through the streets of Grove Park. Botton's Funfair returns once more, along with the BBQ & Beer Tent , Stalls and refreshments, plus a whole lot more. If you’re a stall holder and would like a space, please contact us. Keep popping back here for regular updates, or join our Facebook group or our Twitter account @GPCarnival We have some new faces this year. We say farewell to our Secretary, Dee, who is going travelling for year (but promised to return for 2019) and also to Brenda, our stalls co-ordinator (for family reasons), and we thank them wholeheartedly for their support and dedication. We will miss them and their contributions greatly. In their place, we welcome Lynn (who has the unenviable task of putting the kibosh on some of my more crazy ideas) and George respectively, and along with Andy, Frog, Celia,and our Scout friends, I feel we have a great team to make the 2018 Carnival the best yet!

All in aid of South East London Search & Rescue

Hope to see you there!
