Sponsors 2023

Wells Carnival 2023 will provide an ideal opportunity 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!

Sponsors 2022 – Thank you!

Much of the entertainment put on for your enjoyment during Carnival Week would not be possible without the generosity of businesses, groups and individuals that enthusiastically support our annual Carnival
