Frequently Asked Questions

If you can’t find an answer to your question in our list of FAQs below, please email info@rosscarnival.org.uk.

How do I enter the carnival procession?

Entering the procession is easy. The first thing you need to do is decide on your theme, costumes or performance. Then you can fill out the online entry form on our website, or you can pick up a hard copy from the Ross Town Library. Please check which class you’ll be entered for and state it on the entry form.

Do we need our own stewards and helpers?

It is not necessary to supply your own stewards but it would be a great help to us if you could. We would suggest 6 stewards for class 1 entries and 4 stewards for classes 2, 3 & 6. These helpers are essential to the safety of participants and on-lookers.

Can I collect for a registered Charity?

Sorry, only the Carnival Committee is authorised to collect money during the procession. However, we do encourage charities to enter the procession and/or apply to hold a stall at the carnival field.

Can we hand out sweets, leaflets, stickers etc.?

Yes, but the Committee reserves the right to refuse the distribution of inappropriate material if necessary. Literature which is going to be distributed on the day should be cleared by the Committee prior to distribution. It should also be noted that the Committee cannot hold any responsibility for injury if sweets are thrown from floats.

Can we use music or public address systems?

Yes, but please let us know on your entry form so we can keep entries using music or public address systems apart in the procession line-up. The Committee reserves the right to direct these entries to turn down or turn off their music at any time. It should also be noted that inappropriate music and/or messages will be directed to terminate transmissions.

Do we need insurance?

Yes, all vehicles taking part in the procession are expected to have insurance and be roadworthy. The Committee reserves the right to withdraw entries if your vehicle is deemed unroadworthy.

Do we need a Risk Assessment?

It is not required for entry, but we do suggest in cases when you are responsible for someone’s care (e.g. a school) that you complete a risk assessment. The Carnival Committee cannot be held responsible for any injury sustained whilst participating in the event.

Is there an entrance fee?

Nope! It’s all free, but you will have to provide your own transport.
