Bournemouth Carnival Week

The Bournemouth Carnival, previously known as the Bournemouth Regatta and Carnival, last took place in 2014.

Throughout the week there were be various activities aimed at children up to the ages of 16 including sand building competitions, chalk drawing competitions, treasure hunts and bug hunting. Some even let the grown ups join in!

Taking place at Alum Chine Beach, Durley Chine Beach, along Bournemouth West Beach and in the Lower Gardens, the Bournemouth Carnival began over 100 years ago and the committee worked effortlessly to ensure that it continued for generations to come.

Sadly due to a lack of support and funds, refusal from the council to hold events at Pier Approach and the withdrawal of the carnival procession the committee decided that the Bournemouth Carnival Week would not be continuing beyond 2014.
