Message From Tintagel Carnival Committee.

Following a review by Tintagel Carnival committee, it is with much regret and sadness that we announce that the 2020 Carnival Week and Parade will NOT be taking place. We have been closely monitoring the Coronavirus situation over the past few weeks and have explored all options, however, it is becoming increasingly evident that it would be both irresponsible and unfeasible to continue with Carnival this year during these uncertain and challenging times. The decision has not been taken lightly however the safety and wellbeing of our community, visitors and Carnival participants is always our primary concern. We are also very conscious of the impact that the event would have on the NHS, emergency services and local authority who are doing an amazing job and we do not want to unnecessarily stretch their resources any further. Whilst this is a sad & disappointing decision, and we can assure you that the Tintagel Carnival Committee are equally as sad and disappointed, this is the right thing to do! Keep safe everyone, look after yourselves and see you for Tintagel Carnival 2021 (Next carnival dates will be 31st July – 7th Aug 2021 ‘Carnival Day Sat 7th Aug). Kind regards Phil Aston, Chairman, Tintagel Carnival Committee
