This year festival-goers are asked to 'pay a pound to keep carnival around' to help towards Carnival costs which now amount to £150,000 a year. Collections will be made and programmes sold at all the entry points to the Carnival site. The Carnival receives £30,000 a year funding from Oxford City Council in another three-year agreement to 2018, leaving £120,000 to be raised this year alone.
