Bromsgrove Carnival is a not for profit event that has been run for over 100 years and is run entirely by volunteers.
It is not connected to Bromsgrove District Council – but they are an excellent supporter by allowing them to use Sanders Park.
The event raises money for a nominated charity (or charities) and the charity is nominated at the A.G.M. The money is raised by means of organising a Carnival and/ or Carnival Parade and/ or other associated events at given times throughout the year.
Taking place each year in Sander Park, the carnival includes the 17th running of the Timberhonger 10k, so called as most of the route is on Timberhonger Lane. It has traditionally been part of Bromsgrove Carnival weekend with all profits donated to charity. This year we raised money for local charities the Primrose Hospice, Libby Mae's Little Angels and the Midlands Air Ambulance.
Over the years the race has become famous for it's friendly Carnival atmosphere, great crowds at the finish, and a picturesque course with a now infamous hill.
