Sunday 26 November 2023: Wokingham Winter Carnival
Wokingham Winter Carnival will be a free fun day out for the whole family. The town will be closed to traffic for the day so children can join in the fun in a totally safe environment.
There will be a whole host of street entertainers, music, singing, dancing and all the fun of the fair with loads of different rides. Make sure you visit the Wokingham Lions stall where there will be a fantastic raffle with a prize worth £200

There will also be a fantastic grotto for the children, with Santa greeting them and giving them presents. Please note that due to heavy demand you will have to book a timeslot in advance. Click here to book.

The day will end with a laser light show.
The main beneficiaries of this year’s event will be Share Wokingham and Home-Start. Share primarily offers food and other essential items to those in need, but also serves as a place to meet friendly faces, share a cup of tea and access support. Home-Start is unique in the Wokingham Borough, providing compassionate, confidential and non-judgmental help and friendship to local parents struggling to cope with the daily challenges of family life.
