Free tickets for local charities and community groups

The IRN-BRU Carnival is back, and we want to bring all the joy of the Carnival to as many people as possible, so we're making 500 free tickets available for local charities and community groups in need of a festive treat. 

Charities and community groups are invited to apply for complimentary tickets to the opening session of the Carnival from 12noon on Friday 23 December. This will also be an Autism Friendly Session from 12pm-3pm to make sure the event is accessible as possible for the lucky ticket holders.

Whether you are into the thrill of the waltzers or the sticky wall, the action of the dodgems or the fun of the inflatable play area, the 2022 Carnival will be packed full of the usual family favourites and exciting new attractions. 


  • Complimentary tickets include entry to the IRN-BRU Carnival on 23rd December 2022 from 12pm, plus 5 x tokens per person to use on the rides and stalls.
  • The Autism Friendly session takes place between 12pm and 3pm, though visitors are welcome to stay as long as they wish once they are at the Carnival. For more information on Autism Friendly sessions, please click here.
  • Each charity or community group can apply for up to 10 tickets. Additional tickets can be purchased if necessary.
