It’s that time of year again where the streets of London come alive with traditional and contemporary sounds, vibrant colours and joyous celebrations. Every year on August Bank Holiday weekend, Afro-Caribbean communities come together for Europe’s largest street festival; Notting Hill Carnival.
Originating over 50 years ago in 1964, the Carnival is a time for Afro-Caribbean communities to celebrate their own cultures and traditions, and to remember the Caribbean homes they have left behind.
Kicking off with a pre carnival street party on Saturday, followed by Children’s Day on Sunday and the Monday Parade / The Grand Finale being held on Monday, there’s an array of events and celebrations taking place over the weekend to keep you entertained. Along with music, parades, performances and a wonderful carnival atmosphere, you can even enjoy some tasty Caribbean food and drink!
