Before you know it, it will be back to work again after this summer bank holiday weekend! However, don’t feel down because here at The Amazing Blog we have an event that’ll make this a weekend to remember, as The Notting Hill Carnival is coming to town!
The Notting Hill Carnival, well known as Britain’s biggest street party, has taken place annually on the streets of Notting Hill, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea since 1966. It will start at 9am on Sunday 28th August until 7pm and the same time on Monday 29th of August. It will be the perfect opportunity to dance, get crazy or just to dress in a comical outfit.
This carnival is also a fabulous day for the whole family, with an exuberant Parade for Children led by the carnival team with various music styles and breathtaking performances. On Monday, it will be the Grand finale with 60 bands in crazy costumes. Music is the most important part of Notting Hill Carnival, so expect to hear traditional and contemporary sounds like Soca & Calypso, Reggae, R&B, Funk and House music. Live stages will feature local bands but also international artists.
Head on down to The Notting Hill Carnival, a free event for all to enjoy.
