Notting Hill Carnival
Ladbroke Grove, Notting Hill, London W11
Sun 26 & Mon 27 August 2018 11am-7pm
The orchestra will join the procession of more than 70 floats to entertain the large number of attendees with an exciting blend of Afoxé percussion and Calypso music.
Held each August Bank Holiday since 1966, the Notting Hill Carnival is the largest festival celebration of its kind in Europe. Every year the streets of West London come alive with the sounds and smells of Europe’s biggest street festival.
Twenty miles of floats, steel bands and vibrant colourful costumes surround over 40 static sound systems, hundreds of Caribbean food stalls, over 40,000 volunteers and over 1 million Notting Hill carnival revellers.
This magnificent event is not to be missed.
