Swanage Regatta & Carnival Contents 2016


Ok Bet Lynch lookalike, so you and your two friends (both called Ronnie) are staying up the road at a hotel best described as Fawlty, - get yourself down Acorn Antiques, pick up a few costumes and join our Carnival Procession and have an Absolutely Fabulous time of your lives!


Bring along some Friends and get with The Good Life, talk like darn Eastenders for the day, make out like Footballers Wifes and take a drink at The Rovers Return - this is the Carnival for you… often imitated, never equalled!


Oooo Betty!… over 100 Kaleidoscopic events!... Caribbean Procession colour, the jaw-dropping MAD Extreme Sports Display Team, three unbelievable Fireworks Displays, incredible Marquee Music Festival, Swimming, Treasure Hunts, Dog Show, Titan the Robot, Cornish Gig Racing, Car Boot Sale, stunning Electrohouse Music DJs and ultimate Masquerade Night Party!


Carnival costs over £195,000 each year, receiving no funding from any source unless raised by the sheer determination of my brilliant Carnival cast through sponsorship, this programme and local support. Despite this astronomical sum of money, last year Swanage Carnival still donated£20,000 to local charities & good causes in Swanage & Purbeck... luvverly jubbly as Del would say!


In addition to our 24 chosen charities & good causes, the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance and Swanage Stroke Club receive an annual donation. My nominated 2016 charity is Dorset Mental Health Forum - committed to improve the lives of everyone affected by mental illness.


So Allo Allo!, let’s get On The Buses, , grab your Big Brother, 2point4 children and Carry On raising money for good causes with a pound or two in the collecting buckets whenever you see my Men Behaving Badly!

For the Enjoyment of our Carnival Please Note that:


Swanage Regatta and Carnival and Active Publishing make every effort to ensure that the times and venues of the events listed in the programme are accurate. From time to time it may be necessary to make changes. When this happens, details of changes will be displayed at the Carnival Information Caravan on the Seafront.


Every care is taken to ensure that everyone will enjoy the many events that have been arranged for your entertainment. Wherever there is a large gathering of members of the public, there will inevitably be risks. Swanage Regatta & Carnival has conducted a risk assessment of each of the events, however, safety is the responsibility of us all. We ask, therefore, that you all make every effort to ensure that you do not compromise your own safety or that of anyone else. In particular you are requested to keep all children under close supervision. Please follow any instructions that you may be given by our marshals.


Child ‘Stay Safe’ Message:


Carnival events attract large crowds and there is a possibility of children becoming separated from relatives and friends.


Help keep them safe with 3 simple steps: 1. Identify a specific meeting point with your child/children 2. Attach identity wristbands 3. Provide your child/children with your mobile phone number


Wristbands are available at the Carnival Caravan & the Tourist Information Centre on the Seafront.


Please remember: Swanage Regatta & Carnival does not accept responsibility for unaccompanied children at any of its events.
