Welcome to St Helens Sports & Carnival...

**** STOP PRESS ****

Owing to the ground conditions following the rain over the last week, and with the current forecast for rain in mind, the 2015 sports have been cancelled.

The carnival is still going ahead, with rain due to move through by this evening. We'd love for you to make it, and would really appreciate your support.



Welcome to the time honoured tradition of St Helens Sports and Carnival. At well over 100 years old it's one of the oldest carnivals in the Country.

Held in the village of St Helens on the Isle of Wight every August Bank Holiday Monday, the village sports offer something for everyone (and by everyone, we really do mean everyone from tots to centenarians!). The relaxed, family, fun atmosphere makes for a great afternoon's entertainment.

In the evening we hold the annual carnival procession. Although one of the shorter routes in the Isle of Wight's carnival diary, it is still well attended, despite the general demise of carnivals over recent years.

We'd love to see you on the day - for more information on the sports, carnival, advertising in our programme or joining us visit the contact page.
