Ongo Carnival – cancelled

It has been a difficult decision to make, but due to the bad weather overnight and continuation today, we’ve decided we must cancel the Ongo Carnival.

We’ve assessed the ground this morning and it’s clear to us that it wouldn’t be safe to go ahead.

We have also had a number of suppliers and attractions having to make the difficult decision to cancel. We know it’s the right decision to make – even though we’d love nothing more than to be able to go ahead with our carnival plans.

We’re really sorry that we can’t make it happen today, we look forward to it as much as you do each year.

If you are a supplier or attraction due to attend today, we will be in touch with you as soon as possible, but please don’t head to Manor Park.

We are looking at whether we can rearrange for another day in the summer holidays, so please keep an eye out and we’ll update more on that when we have more information.

We thank you for your support and hope to see lots of you throughout the summer at our other events and activities.
