Sponsors & Supporters
As a sponsor you get the amazing feeling of knowing you’re keeping Carnival alive in Bath, plus you’ll receive a host of benefits for you, your staff, customers and clients.
Meet some of the amazing supporters who have already signed up to sponsor Bath Carnival 2018. Together they’re helping us make this year’s project our most adventurous yet.
Join our award winning volunteer team and be part of Bath’s biggest community project. We need enthusiastic people to help prepare our costumes for school workshops, steward our family festival and marshal the carnival procession. No experience required, we’ll train you up!
Meanwhile our internships offer valuable experience and training to early career artists, budding event managers, photographers and creative writers.
We’ve got a jam-packed calendar of events throughout the year from Carnival club nights, to immersive arts and crafts workshops.
On the big day you can expect an eclectic mix of World music at the Party in the Park in Sydney Gardens and over a thousand dancers, musicians and sound systems in our largest procession ever.
Find out if your child’s school is signed up to the Bath Carnival workshop programme. Check when your nearest community workshop is taking place and signup to a master class in drumming, dance or costume making.
