Hanwell Carnival
Saturday 20th June

Saturday 20th June 2020

2 April 2020


We are very sad to confirm that Hanwell Carnival has been cancelled this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Understandably, it is our duty to comply with government directives to ensure public safety as well as minimise the pressure on emergency and public services in these difficult times.

In line with the carnival, the annual Beating of the Bounds event which was due to be held on 8 May is also cancelled. The Race Night carnival fundraiser has already been postponed and we will look at holding it later in the year when social distancing is not in force.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers, sponsors and regular providers to the carnival for their continued support.

Any charity organisations or traders who have paid for their stall booking for this year’s event will be refunded in the next two weeks.

Rest assured, the team continue to plan, so please put next year’s date in the diary – Saturday, 19 June 2021. The pressure is on to make it the best Hanwell Carnival yet!


Stay safe and well everyone.

Hanwell Carnival has lots of opportunities to get involved, whether you are a charity, company or private individual. With some 50,000 visitors on the day, Hanwell Carnival is the second largest carnival in west London after Notting Hill.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with the carnival. It is a real community effort and takes a lot to put it on. Whatever your skills, your contribution will be most valuable – everyone and everything is very welcome. Please contact us to get involved.

The procession is one of the real highlights of carnival and having a presence guarantees you incredible exposure. Travelling through Hanwell from the Community Centre to Elthorne Park, it really gets the excitement started.
