Sponsors 2020

We are once again rapidly heading towards Wells Carnival 2020 providing an ideal time to promote your business, as well as support us. Extensive coverage is always given by The EDP, Fakenham and Wells Times, local glossy magazines, radio stations, the Quay magazine and local TV & radio.

We obviously greatly appreciate the sponsorship by local businesses, who help fund the larger events, but we also value every individual donation and raffle prize. There are many ways you can ALL support us from just a few pounds to £1000 and above. You could sponsor an event (or a share of an event), advertise in our programme, promote your business on our website, have a donation box, decorate your premises for Carnival or simply donate a raffle prize. EVERY LITTLE HELPS!
