What is the theme for the 2022 Eastbourne Carnival?

The theme this year is ‘The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee’. Get creative and celebrate the Queen’s 70 years as Monarch.

The creative brief is open, but we ask that your entry is a celebration – however you chose to interpret the theme.

We welcome musicians, singers, drummers, bands, sound systems, dancers and those that focus on their costume or floats.

We want this Carnival to be full of colour and performance! You can contact us by email if you have any queries about your entry.

Where does Carnival start and what is the route?

Entrants are encouraged to line up by 1pm at Bolsover Road. The Parade officially begins at 2pm departing from Western Lawns and ending at Princes Park – along Grande Parade and Royal Parade.

I Want To Use A Vehicle Image

I want to use a vehicle as part of my entry – what insurances will I need?

All entrants with an accompanying vehicle need insurance to cover their band. Specific insurance needs to be arranged for your vehicle to cover how you intend to use it during the Carnival. Additionally, wheel Marshals need to be in situ to prevent any accidents or injuries to participants on foot.

We ask that you have a minimum of two marshals wearing high viz bibs walking either side of the front wheels of each vehicle.

You can contact us by email if you have any queries about your entry.

Fundraising at Carnival

If you are a Charity, CIC or Community Group – please indicate this on your entry. We may ask further information to substantiate your status.

Promoting your cause at Carnival

Carnival is a celebration, and each entry must contain an element of performance. This can be through music, singing, dancing or costume presentation. Any banners should be to highlight your organisation only i.e. your name, and not a statement of your cause.

You can contact us by email if you have any queries about your entry.

Environmental guidance for entrants and the public

Eastbourne Carnival seeks to be as sustainable as possible. We encourage entrants and the community to consider the environment at Carnival.

1. Balloons are NOT permitted at Eastbourne Carnival. This is because they cause significant harm to Marine life.

2. Entrants and the public are encouraged to bring refillable bottles for water and use the Refill points along the route. Download the Refill App to locate the closest refill points.

3. Entrants are discouraged from giving out stickers.

4. Entrants and the public are advised to be mindful of their rubbish and ensure they place in appropriate bin or take home

5. Please consider how you get to Carnival – taking public transport, car sharing, walking or cycling as is practical if you can.
