We can not believe we are having to say this but following latest COVID-19 information the Carnival Committee has made the decision to cancel this year’s Community Carnival on 13 June 2020 and all associated events. The committee is disappointed they will not be able to share the 60 year celebrations with you in June as planned, however, look forward to joining you for next years Carnival on Saturday 12 June.
The Carnival is held on the Memorial Ground (next to the Oakwood Centre) on Headley Road, Woodley and comprises stalls from charities and local groups, a funfair, an arena full with acts from local groups, food outlets, a beer tent and inside the Coronation Hall teas/coffees and cakes by the local WI.
We have lots to see on the field with a classic car show, dog show, photographic show and flower show all taking place during the afternoon. There are also some fantastic displays from local enthusiasts of model railways, traction engines, caged birds a mobile petting farm and so much more.
The main arena is always bursting with activity from our local groups with a range of singing, dancing and acrobatic displays for you to enjoy. For younger visitors we have a variety of FREE participation events including inflatable world and rides on the Smiley Train.
We have over 100 stalls on the field and they cater for every age group. Look out for the Carnival information gazebo where you will find members of the committee ready to answer any questions, plus a first aid tent and stewards on hand helping to make sure everything runs smoothly.
There are event toilets provided adjacent to the Oakwood Centre, this is also where the disabled toilet is situated. The Oakwood Centre toilets are not accessible from the carnival field.
There are ample parking facilities adjacent to the carnival field in the local Town Centre pay and display car parks.
All entry wristbands are purchased on the gate. Our busiest time is just after the procession arrives (1.30pm) and our voluntary groups running the gates will do their very best to get you into the field with minimum delay.
