Carnival stewards play a big part in the success of Newbury Carnival and it’s always hard work to recruit enough people, so if you’d like to be part of the team we would love to hear from you.

Stewards’ duties include supervising road closures and crowds, both along the route of the Carnival Parade, through Newbury town centre, and at the Carnival Fete in Victoria Park. Parade stewards need to be available from 12:45 on Sunday 16th July for approximately 3 hours. Fete stewards are required from 10:00 to 18:00 – and you can choose how long you’d like to work.

A briefing will be given to all stewards on the day, which will fully explain duties and requirements. All stewards will work in pairs. High visibility jackets will be provided. Your own clothing needs to be appropriate for the weather and should include stout shoes or trainers.

If you are 18 years old or over and can help with this, please email us via with your name and your phone number. It’s never too late to help!
