This is an announcement on behalf of HACCT to explain that we have decided to cancel carnival at GREENHEAD PARK because of lower than expected ticket sales.
By midnight on Sunday 11th June, we had sold 1143 tickets for Greenhead Park for the Saturday and 270 tickets for the Sunday. We had hoped to sell 15,000 tickets for the Saturday to cover the costs. It has been a massive learning curve for us planning and responding to the challenges but….have to say that we appreciate all the people in our community that has believed in us and purchased advanced tickets. We will make a full refund of your ticket price.
You may of course decide to donate your ticket purchase towards carnival 2018. Please contact your ticket vendor to arrange a refund or request your refund via Paypal.
We appreciate your support so we have changed the venue from Greenhead Park to the Hudawi Centre and surrounding streets.
Plan B is in action which offers a full weekend of entertainment and caribbean vibe starting with……
THE GLOW PARADE ON FRIDAY 7TH JULY followed by the AFTER PARTY
THE CARNIVAL PARADE ON SATURDAY 8TH JULY FINISHING AT THE HUDAWI CENTRE
At the Hudawi Centre there will be music, food stalls and bar refreshment available. There will be drumming and storytelling workshops, Mas bands and artists will performing on stage and selected sound systems will play outside until 7pm.
We are so disappointed about the park venue but hope that you will join us on the Carnival Parade and at Hudawi Centre
