The year will soon be 2020 – There is a strangeness in the air, not all seems ‘right’…..  There is unrest in the galaxy…..several thousand solar systems have declared their intention to take over planet Earth….the date has been set, the decided battlefield being a market town in South Norfolk….

Fellow Dissians, get ready for…..


Save the date: Sunday 14th June 2020!

We want to see aliens and space travellers taking over the town, so think Star Trek and Star Wars, Rockets and  Robots, Planets and Astronauts and lots of Extra Terrestrials! Click here for inspiration with our video teaser!

We saw a huge amount of kindness in the lead up to the Carnival 2019, with locals offering their support through taking part in the procession, sponsorship, raffle prizes, stalls and donations of all kinds. Without the support from you all, Carnival simply wouldn’t be possible!

If you would like to support us in the lead up to Carnival 2020, please get in touch!

So, who forms the backbone of Carnival? The carnival committee is made up of a small group of volunteers who have worked selflessly since September to create this fantastic event. Without their enthusiasm, dedication and imagination, there simply wouldn’t be a Carnival. Natalie Thornton-Jones, Claire Keen, Sue Kiddie, Kimberley Jaynes, Ruth Ward, Sonia Browne, Sonya French and Fiona Wenman. Thank you to each and every one of you who put all the hours in, as volunteers, to create enjoyment for the whole community.

If you would like to become a committee member or volunteer for Carnival 2020, please get in touch!


We’d love to hear your feedback and highlights from the day, along with any photos! Please send them in to towncouncil@diss.gov.uk or share them on our @DissCarnival Facebook page.

Carnival is completely FREE entry- and we’d like to keep it that way! If you would like to support the carnival (and future carnivals) financially, check out our variety of sponsorship packages with plenty of perks for your business in return!
