HORLEY CARNIVAL 2021 IS CANCELLED
At a recent meeting of the carnival committee a decision was taken, with great reluctance, to cancel this year’s Horley Carnival.
Options to look at holding the carnival on different dates was considered as was a change to the format of the event such as not holding a parade. Neither were considered appropriate and the latter was thought to change the established character of the carnival and over the years has proven to be most popular part of the day.
In the end we were very worried about the ongoing COVID pandemic and the ability to maintain guidance such as social spacing which could still be in effect come summer.
We appreciate this decision may be a disappointment, but the welfare of our residents is paramount.
We are in contact with the arena and other acts that we rolled over from last year to attend next years carnival which will take place on Saturday, 18th June.
