The day after Reading Festival I headed into London to experience Notting Hill Carnival for the first time!
This annual carnival has taken place since 1964 in the streets of Notting Hill in Kensington/Chelsea every August Bank Holiday weekend.
It is one of the largest street festivals in the world, attracting over 1 million people. It’s a celebration of London’s multi-cultural diversity but dominated by West Indian / Caribbean culture.
We put flowers in our hair and tried to shake our booties to the steel-drum dominated music (though despite our best efforts, couldn’t perfect this move!)
