Roll up, roll up for the Hampton Carnival

Release Date: 02 June 2017

Fresh lemonade, ice cream, music, stalls and rides will be the order of the day at the Hamptons’ Carnival later this month.

Put Saturday 10 June from 12 to 4pm in the diary. The Hamptons’ Carnival is not to be missed. With stalls and tombola’s, children’s activities and fairground rides, tea dance, a teddy bear’s picnic with the Hampton WI, exhibitions, model railway and a Radio Jackie Roadshow.


This year the carnival is linking up with the Hampton Music Festival to bring you live music and dance performances from students at Hampton High and Kristi’s Dance Academy. Also, attendees are invited to pop into YMCA White House. The cafe will be open – including a carnival summer barbeque.


The event is organised by the Hampton YMCA, supported by Richmond Council. It will be hosted on Nursery Green and Hampton Square.


Cllr Lisa Blakemore, Mayor of Richmond upon Thames, said:


“What an exciting action packed day. There will be something for the whole family. This is a real community event. I hope that the sun continues to shine and lots of people visit Hampton Square in June to browse at the many stalls, try their hand at a traditional summer game, whilst soaking up the local summer atmosphere.”


Tracy Moulds, Project Manager at YMCA White House, said:


“Our popular carnival returns and this year it promises to be bigger and better as we hook up with the Hampton Music Festival and it spreads right the way across from Nursery Green to Hampton Square. YMCA White House is the central hub, so come on in to see what we have going on and take a break in our cafe!”
