The Carnival procession sets off from Sea View at 11.15am on Sunday 2nd August with Ashley Road closed from 11.00am to accommodate this.
It will proceed along Ashley Road and down Alder Road to Branksome Recreation Ground where the Charity Fair will be open between 11.00am and 5.00pm with over 50 stalls, many attractions, live entertainment throughout the day, a beer tent and flower show.

Poole Carnival are aware that the Council have made an error in granting access to the Circus on Branksome Recreation Ground at the same time as the Carnival on Sunday 2 August 2015. The Circus has been moved to the far side of the field reducing public car parking on offer considerably, but this should be the only impact on the event.

The Poole Carnival Committee would like to thank all the above for making this an enjoyable event. At least 20% of the money raised from the Street Collection will be distributed to Julia's House and Gully's Place with other charities also considered.

We would also like to thank all the volunteers who agree to marshal the many roads that have to be secured as the procession passes and ensure crowd control is in place to make this event safe and enjoyable to the thousands of people expected to line the roadsides.

And finally to all the residents whose patience is tested again as the road closure prevents them from their usual activities for a couple of hours on this special day.

HAVE FUN, ENJOY THE EVENT, PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY!
