Europe’s biggest street festival, London’s Notting Hill is taking place on Sunday August 24 until Monday August 25, 2014. Two days in a row of a vivid spectacle, representing the British capital multicultural past and present.
Since 1964 the capital’s Afro-Caribbean communities have celebrated their culture and traditions with a two-day festival of fantastic live music ranging from reggae to dub to salsa, soca floats, steel bands, uplifting beats and traditional Caribbean food as jerk chicken and fried plantain food stalls…
When the Notting Hill Carnival first started fifty years ago, around 500 people attended the festival. Today it attracts hundreds of thousands to London, and continues to grow in popularity. It is a celebration not to be missed: 50,000 performers, more than 30 sound systems and over 1 million people attending over the Carnival weekend. So, expect a sea of colours as amazing floats and costumed performers wind their way through the streets of London.
