In light of the current global situation, it is with sincere regret that the Diss Carnival committee has decided to cancel this year’s town carnival and funday on Sunday 14th June 2020.

After seven months of organising, this is not a decision we have made lightly. We are very aware that this will impact our stallholders and entertainers greatly, but we feel we have a duty to protect contributors and visitors from any unnecessary health risk.   We have deliberated over the last week whether to postpone or cancel, and feel that to postpone without any clear idea of when life will get ‘back to normal’ could lead to an event that is poorly attended and/or not to the standard our visitors and us expect, so we have opted to cancel completely.

For those of you that have already made payments for pitches or sponsorship, we will aim to refund you (through Diss Town Council) via BACS.  In order to do this, please can you forward the following information as soon as possible:

Name of Bank

Account Name

Account Number

Sort Code

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us via carnival@diss.gov.uk.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting Diss Carnival and will contact you later in the year in the hope of working with you again for Diss Carnival 2021!

We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment this has caused and sincerely wish you all the best during this difficult time.

Our very best regards,

Diss Carnival Committee 2020
