Refreshments on Carnival Day
No Carnival would be complete without a burger or two and Gerard Varin ensures our Hog roast and BBQ are a roaring success. Setting the pig in motion in the early hours for your enjoyment, and run by volunteers throughout the day. All profits are split directly between Duffield Carnival and the Round Table; so every burger you eat directly benefits the village.

The Cumberhills Womens Institute (W I) will again be providing tea, coffee and their superb cakes in the small marquee. There will also be Cafe2U, Fredericks Ice Cream and Fresh Rootz for snacks throughout the afternoon. Later in the day there will be pizzas and curries ….

In large marquee, sponsored by DBS (Duffield Building Services Ltd), Duffield Cricket Club are again manning our licenced bar, with the proceeds being split between Duffield Carnival and the Cricket Club so it’s worth having that extra pint! Take a look at the Arts and Crafts on display at the same time….

We look forward to seeing you there.
