Carnival Development Fund

About the Carnival Development Fund

Each year Sandown Carnival sets aside a proportion of its donations to distribute to worthy causes on the Island, specifically to help them realise their carnival-related projects. Groups may apply for grants towards the costs of materials, artists, training, research and development, venue hire, rental costs, instruments and props etc.. The aim is to improve the content of our carnivals for everyone's enjoyment, and over the past few years there have been some very notable entries which may not have happened without our direct support.

The 2017 fund is NOW CLOSED
