Notting Hill Carnival

The Notting Hill Carnival has been taking place in London, on the last weekend in August, for the past thirty seven years. The arrival of Trinidadians in Great Britain, remembering their great Carnivals back home, provided the spark which ignited Notting Hill Carnival. From a small procession through the streets with just a few people in costume and carrying steel drums in the 1960s, has evolved a huge multi-cultural arts festival, attended by up to two million people.
