Notting Hill Carnival is a fun filled day 2 days celebrating the Caribbean culture whilst embracing all cultures, celebrating the true diversity of our community.
Notting Hill Carnival is second to Brazil’s Rio carnival in size & it is one of the globe’s largest annual arts events.

There will be plenty of Sound Systems playing us all the tunes we love to move our waistlines to! From Dancehall, Socca, R&B & Hip Hop to House, Grime, Techno & Pop.
To name a few of the Sound Systemsthat we can expect to hear are Rampage, Saxon, 4 Play, Mark Rossand plenty, plenty more!
The main events run on Sunday and Monday, but thing’s kick off at 6pm on Saturday evening with a family-friendly open-air evening with the UK National Panorama Steelband Competition in Emslie Horniman’s Pleasance Park.
The centrepiece of the festival, the parade, kicks off at 9.30am on Sunday and Monday.
