Burwell Village Carnival


Having returned with a successful Burwell Carnival once again in June, following an enforced 2 year absence due to the covid pandemic, we're now gearing up for our Burwell Community Festival Day, September 3rd 2022, 2-10.30pm, Margaret Field. Although this is primarily a 'village' event, with local groups running stalls/games to raise their own funds (see below), alongside our bar, stage & field entertainment, food vendors and inflatable attractions; we also have room for 20 craft/commercial stalls - please select 'stall booking' or button below to book. Last year the event was attended by over 2500 people, and we're looking forward to hopefully attracting a similar number of attendees. Watch this space and our Facebook event page for further details. 

Many thanks
