The Dunmow Carnival is one of the town’s premier community events attended by over 5,000 people. The Great Dunmow Round Table (GDRT) will once again be running the ever popular Bar & Barbeque. As well as being an integral part of the carnival experience it is a key part of the GDRT charity fundraising.

Our long history at and commitment to the Carnival

Not content with just being regular entrants at Dunmow Carnival, Great Dunmow Round Table agreed to take over the running in 1985. Despite the years in its care being a great success, in 2004 the running of the Carnival was passed over to the town’s Carnival Committee but Table continued run what is now the bar and barbeque.


Carnival BBQ

The BBQ has improved from just selling bangers and burgers to offering Sweetland’s burgers and Coulson’s bacon and sausages. We’ve spiced things up by offering chilli specials and if you’re one of the early risers, why not try our famous Breakfast Baps.

If you don’t want to queue for a drink in addition to your food, why not ask one of our members to jump the drink queue on your behalf so you can pay for everything in one go.

Carnival Bar

The bar has grown from just offering beer, wine and soft drinks to a fully stocked bar with guest ales and a full selection of spirits.

The Carnival is a huge fund raising opportunity for the Round Table, a voluntary organisation, and all of the members give their time free of charge at the Carnival and other events throughout the year.
