We know that when the August Bank Holiday comes around every year, it brings with it the Notting Hill Carnival. The streets of West London come to life with the energetic sights, sounds and smells (yup, you guessed it, that famous Jerk Chicken) of Europe’s biggest street festival.
Possibly London’s most sensational annual event brings the lavishly glitzy and colourful carnival parade, filled with feathered and sequinned costumes with a plethora of dancers and revellers.
So do you feel like joining in? If you’ve been to Carnival before, you’ll know that absolutely anything goes, in fact the brighter and bolder the better. Sequins, crystals, feathers, big, bright and bold; just make sure you go all out!
Remember the motto of the Notting Hill Carnival: “Every Spectator is a Participant – Carnival is for all who dare to Participate!”. Make sure you get involved this year.
