Whitley Bay Carnival 2020

Lock-down carnival is an invitation for absolutely everyone, wherever they are, to get together apart and celebrate community, belonging and making meaningful positive things happen whatever the barriers might be.

We had planned to invite everyone to come to Whitley Bay to see our annual thousand strong costumed parade and enjoy three days of street music, theatre, circus, food and general togetherness over the late May bank holiday but with the Covid-19 global lockdown that just isn’t possible this year so instead we invite you to decorate your place, put messages and bunting in your windows, make a fun costume, dress up, have a picnic, learn a dance and maybe a song (we will be showing you how) that we can all do together and at the time we would have been welcoming the carnival parade …party like its 2020.

We will be sharing ideas, how to videos and zoom tuition meet ups.. and on the day we hope to go live on Facebook and find a way to showcase all your pictures, words, videos and more…think ‘band aid’ meets Thursday NHS and key workers applause. We want you to make little videos of how you made your picnic, bunting, costumes or decorations, anything you do towards the day. We want to see your windows, see you in your costumes , we want to see your dances, hear your songs and we want to make such a noise at 2pm that we can be heard for miles.

This is just a save the date… more news to follow

Whitley Bay Big Local supports Whitley Bay Carnival.

Have your say - pass it on*IMPORTANT*
In order to put together an ambitious post Covid recovery plan for Whitley Bay, People and Places are working on behalf of North Tyneside Council by conducting research into what the businesses, organisations and the community would like to see within our town.

Over the last couple of weeks the businesses in Whitley Bay, facilitated by the Whitley Bay Chamber of Trade have put their views forward via an online survey.

It’s now YOUR turn to have your say! What would you like to see in Whitley Bay? What changes would you make?

Whilst we actively encourage healthy (and polite!) debate in the comments, in order to have your voice heard you must fill in the online survey as the comments here won’t be monitored by Chris of People & Places. The survey findings will be used to decide upon future priorities in order to help our community and businesses get more out of our town centre.

Please fill in the online survey here 👇🏼and share our post amongst your Facebook friends so they can have their say too.
