The stars of the advert are seen spinning around one of our exciting Waltzer rides. Our expertise in working on Film Functions is renowned.

Working in the shadow of Greatness

Carnival Funfairs can be found in many wonderful parks and open spaces as well as at international venues such as Hong Kong and Edinburgh (which may be more foreign than at present sooner than we all thought) However we are particularly delighted to be working our superb carousel in a location that is very much fixed in the public conciousness, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, scene of so many wonderful Olympic and Paralympic triumphs and tears.
We will be open with this lovely ride in the shadow of the Orbit all through the summer so just call down and join us in the shadow of greatness for a wonderful experience. Of course the stadium will be the home of West Ham very soon so we may have to consider renaming this feature!
The ride is open every weekend and each day during school and bank holidays from now until the end of September. Come as often as you like.

Happy New Year from Hong Kong!

Carnival Funfairs love to travel to new places, and also love to travel to old places too, but this winter we found ourselves in Hong Kong for the fantastic European Carnival from November to the Chinese New Year on February 19th and the celebrations right through until 22nd. Here is a fabulous photo of the event, and a good time was had by all! So Gong Hey Fat Choy from all of us (Happy New Year in case you wondered)

Normally Carnival Funfairs travel no further east than Colchester for the wonderful military Tattoo, but this year we are carrying on a bit further and sailing to Hong Kong for the Great European Carnival, to be held from December 2014 to February 2015. We are still all at sea, as is normal for us really, but here is an image of the press launch and there will be more to follow once we are fully open.

A Tale of Two Cities

We are absolutely certain that everyone who reads our website news stories, should such a person exist, is very well aware that there is a great Christmas Festival in London each year running once again from November 21st through to January 4th. Now we are delighted to tell you about another, in one of the other great capitals of this United Kingdom, and that is Edinburgh.

Running over the same period from November 21st to January 4th, is the Edinburgh Christmas Festival featuring the giant Sky Wheel that will offer the best views of this historic city you can find. This is an event not to be missed and fortunately you still do not need a passport to go from England to Edinburgh to enjoy this, or to change your money into Euros! So this is a capital opportunity not to be ignored.

We are barred on Southbank every summer!

During the wonderful summer, soon to fade from our memories no doubt as we shiver despite global warming, we took our Carousel Bar and dropped it on London's Southbank for the magnificent summer festival there.
Hundreds of thousands of visitors, young, old, tourists, Londoners, tired and ultimately emotional businesspeople, all came and not only enjoyed a pie and a pint or something similar, but great and wacky entertainment. This collage may give an indication of some of the fun, but join us next year to enjoy more. Better still, visit the Carousel Bar in Winter Wonderland in the meantime, and best of all do both!

Wheel Meet Again

Our GIANT Ferris wheel will tower above the city centre as the centrepiece of Edinburgh’s Festival for the first time in its history. So forget the Fringe, the Tattoo and the rest, ride our wonderful wheel and see it all.
The colossal attraction – standing at 42 metres – will offer “unrivalled views” of a bustling Capital at the height of the festival season and even air clips from must-see performances into each of its 36 pods.
The big wheel is identical to the one featured at Edinburgh’s Winter Wonderland and will be fixed at the same location next to the Scott Monument.
The fee paid for placing the wheel in Edinburgh at this key time is being ploughed into maintaining monuments at Princes Street Gardens.
Capital residents – with ID to prove their EH postcode – will secure a 20 per cent discount on the £8 fare.
Up to 216 short extracts from headline shows featured in the Jazz and Blues Festival, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, International Festival, Fringe Festival and International Book Festival will be broadcast in the six-person pods.
