Lightning Fibre is back for its second year as sponsor of the Eastbourne Carnival.
After the success of the Eastbourne Carnival in 2022, local company Lightning Fibre has been invited back as a platinum sponsor for the new carnival on the 27th May 2023. The company has accepted the honour and is now Platinum Sponsor for this year carnival and will be entered into the parade with its own float once more. Eastbourne Carnival is a much-loved community event that attracts thousands of people from all over the region. A representative from Lightning Fibre said: “We are delighted to be able to support such a fantastic event. As a company, we are committed to supporting local initiatives that make a positive difference to our community. Eastbourne Carnival is a perfect example of an event that brings people together and creates a great atmosphere. We are looking forward to working with the Carnival team to make 2023 a year to remember!”.
Eastbourne Carnival is an annual event that celebrates the vibrant culture of Eastbourne and its surrounding areas. First established in 1975, Eastbourne Carnival marks the start of the summer in Eastbourne, with a parade through the town, along with food stalls, live music and other entertainment. Local businesses are expected to thrive on carnival day. It is a fantastic event that is enjoyed by residents and visitors alike, with thousands expected to attend each year.
Eastbourne Carnival has grown from strength to strength over the years, and Lightning Fibre will be playing a part in ensuring its future success. The event is a great opportunity to promote the culture and heritage of the area, and Lightning Fibre’s sponsorship contribution will help make sure the event reaches new heights in 2023. With Lightning Fibre’s continuing support, The Eastbourne Carnival could be bigger and better than ever before.
Last year the carnival coincided with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and the theme was orientated around celebrating the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Lightning Fibre entered a float, decorated with Union flags, red, white and blue ribbons, and posters of the queen. This year, platinum sponsors Lightning Fibre are expected to pull out all the stops with their float and bring that extra ‘carnival feeling’, with music, DJ, decorations, and dancers.
Eastbourne Carnival is a community organisation, organised by a volunteer committee. Most of the committee have been involved with Carnival since it came back in 2011. The carnival organisers are into their second year collaborating with Lightning Fibre.
The theme this year is ‘Sussex By The Sea’. Entrants are encouraged to get creative and celebrate what they love about the great County of Sussex.
