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 – every burger you eat directly benefits the village.

There will also be Artisan Crepes, Toasties, Ice Cream and snacks throughout the afternoon. Later in the day there will be hot potatoes, pizzas and curries ….

In large marquee, sponsored by tbc, Duffield Cricket Club are again manning our licenced bar, organised by The Kings Head, incorporating White Peak Distillery Gin 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 baking competition entries on display in the other end of the marquee, whilst sampling afternoon tea provided by Cumberhills WI….

We look forward to seeing you there.

Buy your tickets in advance of Carnival Day and pay £2.50, from DUFFIELD NEWS, PATTENMAKERS ARMS, MEADOW VALE STORE, TOWN STREET FISH BAR and THE TOWN ST TAP
All tickets on CARNIVAL DAY will cost £5
Ticket sales pay for our costs e.g. marquees, acts, toilets etc. Without these sales we could not stage the Carnival.

CARNIVAL ENTRY POLICY for our Disabled guests and their Carers
Disabled guests are welcome to obtain tickets through the usual channels. Their carers are entitled to free entry when providing proof of disability on arrival such as a Blue Badge, Doctor’s Letter or DLA/PIP entitlement.

CARNIVAL ENTRY POLICY for stallholders, activity providers and their assistants, etc.
“If you arrive before 12.00 to set up, and plan to stay for the duration, you will not be charged an entry fee (Pass-outs are available if you need to take a break). For the other helpers it is not unreasonable to expect them to purchase an advance ticket (£2.50) which gets 7 hours of entertainment. If you feel you need free entry, please contact the Carnival Chairman
The contribution of the helpers is important, however it should be appreciated that hundreds of people contribute to the staging of the Carnival, if all got in for free we would not be creating the revenue necessary to cover the costs.”
