Forthcoming Events

Welcome to Gillingham Carnival Committee's Official Website!

Gillingham Carnival Committee is a voluntary group that organise and run Gillingham Carnival by raising funds through events, donations and street collections, in order to finance the annual Carnival and make donations to local organisations. New committee members are always welcome.

Gillingham Carnival Processions 2021 CANCELLED. To return 8th October 2022.

After careful consideration Gillingham Carnival Committee has decided that in order to safeguard the public, participants and organisers of Carnival that we will not be holding Carnival Processions on 9th October 2021.

However we hope to be able to hold a number of other smaller events during Carnival Week, Sunday 3rd October to Saturday 9th October inclusive.

We feel that should Covid social distancing restrictions still be in place for large events it would be impossible to safely control large crowds on the streets of Gillingham

Some of the events we hope to hold are: Window Spotting, Walking Treasure Hunt, Quiz Sheets, Childrenís Painting Competition, Carnival Scarecrows, Virtual Carnival
