The 2020 Hackney Carnival will not be held this year as organisers focus their resources on dealing with the Covid-19 health crisis.

This year’s carnival will be replaced by a digital cultural programme led by the grassroots carnival groups that regularly take part in Hackney Carnival. The groups will still receive planned funding.
