Corporate Sponsors

The Harborough Carnival is a self-funding event held for the community and organised by volunteers. We do a lot of fundraising, and apply for various grants to help us to be able to put the event on each year, as well as raising some money to give back to charity.

But to make it the awesome (award winning!) event that it is, we’re always looking to gain extra funding, and this is where you come in.

Below is a list of sponsorship opportunities available, or we’re open to other suggestions too. Just get in touch with Nancy on


We also have advertising opportunities in our Carnival Programme, which not only is distributed to the thousands of people on the day, but is also posted out to local houses and businesses in the weeks before the event, letting everyone know that the Carnival is happening and what’s on.

Our amazing sponsors so far will be listed here soon…



As you know, the Carnival is a community event, and everything we raise goes back in the pot to enable us to put on the event each year.

We do have four nominated charities each year, and will be the only ones that are allowed to bring a stall and raise money.

Here is a list of our 2019 charities:


As the only hospice of its kind in the East Midlands, Rainbows provide vital care and support to children and young people suffering from life-limiting conditions.

Beech Tree Bunnies

Beech Tree Bunnies is a rabbit and guinea pig rescue centre based in Kibworth, near Market Harborough, Leicestershire. They have under cover facilities for 30 pets and outdoor retirement areas for several more.

Helped by volunteers, they raise money in various ways including holding stalls at the local boot sales, selling plants, soft toy tombolas and boarding pets while people are on holiday.

 All their work is voluntary with all funds raised go towards food, vet fees and hutches.
