Illuminated Procession 2021
It is with deep regret that, due to the current Covid 19 pandemic, Pewsey Carnival has been cancelled for 2021. As you know, there has been a dramatic rise in the number of infections resulting from the highly transmissible Delta Variant. In addition, the vast majority of new infections are taking place within the younger generations. These two factors combined with the large multi-generational crowds that traditionally gather for the main Carnival events have increased the risk of holding those events to an unacceptable level. This, and the current uncertainty as to what the future holds, leaves us with little choice.
We are currently investigating the possibility of running modified or new events in a safe manner and further information will be released when known. This has been a difficult and deeply sad decision to make but we are confident that you will understand the necessity of safeguarding our families, our friends, and our guests from unnecessary risk.
