NEWS | Visitors descend upon London for Notting Hill Carnival


Record numbers of visitors are expected to descend upon West London for the Notting Hill Carnival this bank holiday weekend, thanks to the start of the Paralympic Games.
Thousands of officers will be deployed for the event, including specialist officers and technology, as Europe’s biggest carnival, celebrates Caribbean culture and the UK’s close ties with the islands.
The colourful carnival will pass along Westbourne Grove, Chepstow Avenue, Great Western Road, Kensal Road and Ladbroke Grove.

Historically steel bands, Soca & Calypso Music have been at the heart of Carnival but in recent years these have been overtaken by the static sound systems playing anything from Reggae to R&B, Funk, House, and Dub.
Live stages also feature local bands, top international artists and sounds from around the world – Eddie Grant, Jamiroquai, Wyclef Jean, Courtney Pi
